    OK guys, I think we are on our way to a solution.
    First, following Simrick's suggestion in Post 27, I do have everything on a private wireless network and "connect automatically" is ON; however, there is no, repeat no, "Make this PC discoverable" to check. "Connect automatically..." is followed by "Random hardware addresses"-ON, followed by "Metered connections"-OFF

    As the firesticks were not being detected by the PC, I then did: Control panel>Devices&Printers>Add a device>Adam's 2nd Firestick Tablet PC>next>the screen shot below. Problem is I don't know where or how to find the WPS PIN for my PC. Furthermore, the instructions are confusing as it also says "...you can find it on the firestick or in the info that came with it" as I don't recall a WPS pin coming with the firestick??? Problem: don't know how to do this.






    So, I think the problem is that I need guidance on how to have the computer recognize the firesticks, eh? And the reason for needing this is so that the firesticks have to know that in order to "pair" with some internet sites.

    Lets try this. I assume this router you rent/buy/etc is a dual band and has a guest network. I think we go back to simrick's comment on aligning network and bands.

    Click on Start, Settings, Network and Internet, click on Wi-Fi on left hand side. In the right window click on your wireless network. This should open a window. Beside "discovery" if you scroll down what band are you using, 2.4Ghz or 5 Ghz?

    Also please note the specific name of the wireless network you are on.

    Now lets go back to the Fire Stick. I can't see any mention of WPS in the fire stick I'm reading.

    So with your fire stick connected to TV and that HDMI input selected can you go to settings in Fire TV menu, then Network.

    Which network and band is it connected to?

    The modem/router is a dual band (Arris TG1682G---Intel (R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165), but i have no idea about a "guest network."

    Click on Start, Settings, Network and Internet, click on Wi-Fi on left hand side. In the right window click on your wireless network. This should open a window. Beside "discovery" if you scroll down what band are you using, 2.4Ghz or 5 Ghz?
    5 GHz

    Also please note the specific name of the wireless network you are on.

    Now lets go back to the Fire Stick. I can't see any mention of WPS in the fire stick I'm reading.
    Nor can I, but to connect the firestick to the modem/router, I had to press the WPS button

    So with your fire stick connected to TV and that HDMI input selected can you go to settings in Fire TV menu, then Network.

    Which network and band is it connected to?
    AdamWifi-5, but I don't see anything relating to band.


    That's about it.

    Configure the FireStick
    Settings> Display & Sounds and then enable display mirroring

    I don't think you can mirror from a computer.

    Here are instructions for adding a browser to your Fire device.
    The Fire TV Now Has a Web Browser - Cord Cutters News
    Does that work, instead of connecting to your computer?

    (Your computer won't have a WPS pin - that's something a router has.)

    Maybe you can try this. I can't do it, because I have VMWare on my rig.

    I'll let you process through the info simrick has provided. From the information you provide it looks like both are on the 5Ghz band, the "name of your network-5". Likely you see the same network name with the "-5" which is your 2.4Ghz. Neither reference anything guest so both devices are on and are using the 5GHz band. Thanks for getting that info.

    OK, guys, I think we are at the end of the trail. Got everything on the same wifi network. Can get the internet on the TV via the firestick. Can't get vieracast on the TV as I most likely need an access point hooked into the TV...but not a problem as I was mosrt interested in the firestick activity. Thanks for your patience and your help.
