    Windows 8.1 computer not showing in network on Windows 10 10049 system


    I have 3 computers on my network

    Windows 8.1 Pro X64 - named Desktop
    Windows 7 Pro X64 - named Webserver
    Windows 10 TP X64 build 10049 - named Laptop

    I can see all 3 computers on my network from Desktop and Webserver.
    I can see Webserver and Laptop from Laptop.
    I can not see Desktop on Laptop.
    I can see the Desktop shares on Laptop by entering \\Desktop in the address bar of Windows Explorer (Network).

    I was able to see all computers from all computers before I upgraded to build 10049 and I believe I could see all from all even after the upgrade until last night.

    Note: Just rebooted Laptop and now I see only Webserver, Laptop no longer shows.

    These images are from Laptop:

    Microsoft is in the middle of a huge network rewrite.. this was the reason why the IPv4 properties were disabled in 10049.

    My guess is this should shake itself out in a few builds as they complete the work.

    Same problem here.
    I reinstalled 10041 and then upgraded to 10049. All is good now.

    Okay, thanks, I'll wait as I can get to them, they are just not showing.
    Just realized I don't see them in net view either so it's got something to do with Computer Browser service.

    But you can still add them manually using network address (IP address). They just don't show up automatically. Right click on "This PC" and select "Add a network location". You should know the IP addresses of your other PCs to do this.

    <Whine> What do those of us who are not network savvy do in the meantime, Mystere? Is there any hope for us?

    Desperately trying to figure this network thing out, Robot! I can right click on This PC, but why do I need the IP addresses of my other PCs. (They're turned off for now). So, where do I get another IP address? Help!?!? Puhleeeeeeeeeeeze!

    You only do that if you want to connect and access files between PCs (network sharing).

    Oh. So there's no way I can do something to make Windows 10 stick to the Internet?

    Did you try installing the original network driver?
    Did you try connecting via ethernet cable (wired) if you have the same problem?
