    I can see Devices, but Cannot Open Networked Devices


    I recently installed Windows 10 on a laptop. I have a bunch of computers on the network to include a WD MyCloud and a shared printer. The Win 10 computer can 'see' the devices in Network file explorer. When I attempt to open a computer or the MyCloud, I get an error message that the device cannot be found. But, printing to a standalone networked IP printer works fine. Also, printing to a printer hosted on an iMac acting as a print server works fine, too.

    I tried connecting from two PCs on Windows 7 and they can see and open the other computers and MyCloud without any problems. I logged into MyCloud's website and the drive is visible from outside the router. I did restart router and other network equipment a few times just in case.

    Something with the Win10 settings I am sure - I tried turning file and print sharing under Advanced Network Settings On and Off and still no access. I turned the firewall and virus software off, still no access. Why can the PC show me all the icons along with their network names, but I cannot open anything?

    I fixed the problem. I uninstalled the wifi driver, restarted, reinstalled driver, and everything worked!
