    Computer Name resolving problem


    10586 broke my network of 9 computers as well...There is a Name Resolving problem right now...
    If you are using upper case and lower case for your computer names and or shares rename them'
    so they have all the same case Upper or Lower...I was able to fix my network issues on all except
    one PC that is on a Wifi link (I can see that one still from a Windows 7 PC)...

    This may help some...May not fix all issues depending on your installation.

    (don't forget to reboot PC and Router).

    Have 3 Win 10 Laptops just upgraded to Threshold 2.

    Laptop 1 (which is a Win 10 Upgrade from Windows 8.1) can see both the other laptops in the Workgroup network and access them both.

    Laptop 2 and Laptop 3 (which are Win 10 Upgrade from Windows 7) showing zippo on File Explorer for the Network.

    I've been trying all sorts of tweaks and settings all day and still no luck.

    Another interesting observation. I forget what setting change it was, but on that one also appeared on ALL 3 my Samsung Smart TV which is on the Network. However, the Samsung is now not showing, which isn't a big deal, but strange that appeared and then dissappeared since.

    Considering the amount of tweaks I've done all day I would have expected to get a positive fix by now, so I'm leaning towards this is a BUG in the Threshold upgrade seeing that a lot of other users are having the same issue and when combined with all the users having tried lots of tweaking also, someone should have found the fix.

    Seems likely also then that the bug is related to being dependent if you upgraded to Win 10 from Win 8.1 or Win 7, since my Win 8.1 is seeing everything and both the Win 7's are not.

    ** UPDATE **

    Well this is strange. Turned off all the PC's. Then started them in a different order with my main Laptop that was one of the Win 7's originally.

    Now on that Laptop. In File Explorer, I can see and access the other Win 7 Laptop and the Laptop that used to be Win 8.1. But now in both of those they can't see any of the other Laptops.

    This Threshold upgrade is becoming a real time burner now.

    Really not cool also how MS changed App Defaults, Removed a program without notification, and changed a bunch of Settings.

    The most valuable thing is your time. And our time is being wasted with this upgrade.

    ** UPDATE **

    OK this is interesting now.

    Turned Media Streaming to ON on all 3 Laptops.

    Then turned all the Laptops off.

    This time I started Laptop 3 first.

    Now that other that was a former WIN 7 can see the other 2 Laptops in the Network.

    ALL the Laptops can see the Media Devices in each. Plus all can see the big screen Samsung and the Samsung sees all of them.

    So media streaming devices are all appearing perfectly in File Explorer.

    So whichever Laptop gets turned on first can see the other PC's in the network, and then the Laptops turned on second or third can not see any of the others in File Explorer.

    This is quite a bug.

    Interesting also. Once I turn off the one started first that could see the entire network, neither of the either two get capability to see the other still when that goes off.

    Anyone make sense of this with these observations??

    Absolutely, I agree with you. This OS, in particular the build 1511 is a SHAME. SHAME for PRIVACY, SHAME for all.

    I find a way...

    Apparently the problem come from build 1511 because it use samba 3, so you have to disabled like that :

    Command prompt / administrator and type two lines together like that :

    sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
    sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled

    clic on enter

    This run for me, I can see all my mapped PC now, windows XP, windows 10 and thresold

    I fixed my sharing problem caused by the wrong SMB version in July.

    Solved Network Shares not seen with MS account - Windows 10 Forums

    Interesting to see how many others are affected with the SMB problem.

    The problem I'm having is that my son gave my wife his old computer. So I upgraded it to win 10 a few days ago. My wife's old computer has win 7 and it connects fine with mine (win 10 pro 64-bit). I moved her files to one of my HDs so I could put them on the new one. But when I looked at the networks, hers only showed her computer and not mine. But I could see hers and mine from my computer. Then today I mapped drives to her computer to get to the files. I don't know why mine doesn't show up in the network folder, but I can map drives. It's been very frustrating getting this all worked out. The homegroup is just a joke. I couldn't get it working in win 7 and still can't in 10. I would rather have my computer showing up under networks, than having to map drives to connect her computer to mine. Her win 7 works with my win 10 computer.

    seems solved

    This might be some help in figuring this problem out: I imaged my win10 installation (which was working fine before) to go onto a bigger hard drive. That is when this problem began for me.

    When I started the services "function discovery provider host" and "function discovery resource publication" on each of the PCs not showing up, they immediately appeared, especially after "function discovery resource publication" is started. I set them to automatic. Works for me.
