  1. Cannot connect to local network using Win 10 Pro


    Hi,


    we have a win 10 Pro x64 pc and a win 10 Home x64 pc with the same network configuration.

    The problem is that we can only connect to our local network from the Home machine but not from the Pro machine.



    What could be the issue here? Is there anything special in Win Pro that needs to be configured in order to connect?

    Or is it something that needs to be set up when using Win Pro?


    Thanks!

    :)

    Win 10 Network Printer Connection Problem

    I have tried, when using the wifi from a Win 7 computer to connect to the printer connected to it. Others can connect.

    I did do the three steps outlined:

    • Open File Explorer. Pick the "Network" icon from the left pane (navigation pane) of the file explorer UI.
    • If sharing is turned off you will see a pale yellow line towards the top of the window that states "Network Discovery is turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change...".
    • Click this bar and select "Turn on network discovery and file sharing"

    None of the suggestion worked.

    I did notice that the PC I'm connecting to is 'Private' while I am listed as 'Public'.

    • Can this be causing the problem?
    • Are there other suggestions?

    I need to be connected to use the other printer so work flow can not be disrupted and someone else needs to print the file for me.

    I will be with this group again on Monday.

    Thank you.

    1. Open Admin command and type: ipconfig

    2. Win+X->Control Panel->Netwok and Sharing Center
      Follow the screen shot. This should disable internet access from this PC but allows access to local device(s)
      NOTE: Use the IP & Subnet Mask from step 1. Leave Default gateway & DNS Server blank
