    More info will be needed before anyone can venture a guess.
    1- Can you get on the internet at all or do you mean that you just can't see the other networked computers?
    2- How is your network setup, Homegroup or Workstation?
    3- What all have you tried to try to connect?
    4- Are you using a router or modem?
    5- Have you checked to make sure that drives are shared and Network and Sharing settings are correct?
    6- Make sure that File and Printer is enabled in the firewall.

    Try going back to the old Windows 7 driver for the network adapter. I'm using a DWA-something Dual Band PCIe adapter and I could only get 5ghz to show up when I went back to the old driver.

    If you can see it in 7, but not in 10, that means that the driver is not able to see the 5 ghz radio. Make sure that the setting is enabled for 2.4/5 ghz in adapter settings. What happens when you open a Command Window and enter without the quotes: 'netsh wlan show all'?
