Yep ready to build a fire, where's the Marshmallows? From the Windows 10 machine, I can ping other devices with no problems. If these are installed correctly, then move on to the next check. If you are trying to connect and the Win 10 computer is logged in as a Microsoft account you need to use that password to get there. I have a suspicion that if we were to install the motherboard chipset driver and then retest and if fail then the network card driver we would strike off another common issue. Tried to ping with the computer's firewall on and off.
Hopefully this will help someone. Now expand the Private profile option and make sure Network Discovery is turned on along with automatic setup. Please see the for more information on how you can protect your privacy. Yes, that's right folks, after 25 years of being able to browse our networks Microsoft have decided Workgroup users don't need this functionality any more. I hope this helps others of you out there. Machine: Windows 10 Pro x64 Ver. So the network appears to just be you and the default gateway.
Yeah, I'm thrown for a loop since my bosses laptop does connect. Thanks for the suggestion linw. Try to temporary turn of Firewall and security application to have a test. Sharing is the same throughout--Password protected by user, and I think everything else is the same. We don't know what happened, but suddenly none of the computers on the network can see the others.
So when I am in the Windows, it is not pingable. This should hopefully fix any problems you are having with not being able to browse computers on your network. A normal join of a work group plus the usual sharing adjustments just don't work. On each computer, I see the other computers in the network list. This should make your router the Master Browser.
This protocol must be installed in order to be able browse the local network. Make sure that the user logged into that machine has rights or access to view that shared drive, so go to where ever that shared folder sits, I. I have one laptop which is native Win 10. I use a computer as a tool. I had this issue whilst I was playing about with a test 2012 server. The techs had used my name, not my partner's name, for the user account. I have a few hours of work to push through, then will eagerly work on the Linux suggestion.
Everything in on Windows 10. Hahaha So I am guessing again you have some third party firewall. I re-iterate that this is just a short term workaround, Computer Browsing for workgroups is history for Windows 10. Starting it solved the problem. Like many people, I spent hours trying various suggestions gleaned online, and nothing worked.
I assumed you meant us to choose Windows Credentials. Everything was working great until about a week ago. Nothing network wise has changed as of recent. I right clicked on the computername and added it to quick access. Any that could be given would be great. I'll have to check out the ping after I get back from taking the young'uns to the dentist.
This is one of the most frustrating problems I've come across. We're looking forward to your response. All named Workgroup and all have Internet access. I don't want to hijack your post. Users who's data is in the cloud, on the internet have less issue, it may only affect attaching printer resources which can be worked around. You can check the service by clicking on Start, typing in services.
