  1. Computers suddenly missing on network


    Our home network has a desktop and 3 laptops. The 3 laptops all print through the network to the printer attached to the desktop.

    For some reason only 1 of the laptops now shows in the desktop network folder. The other 2 have vanished and cannot see the desktop either so no printing. I have tried running both Homegroups and using names & passwords but no difference. I also have a server on the network and that has vanished.

    I have checked the credentials and all passwords and names are correct.

    I have removed Avast anti-virus and have Windows firewall set to default settings running with Defender.

    Windows 10 is the latest version 1511 on all the PCs.

    Any ideas?

    :)

    Windows 10 Network Computers missing on some computers (9 networked together)

    Found the solution yet brah ?

    Updated 6 of my PCs in office to W10 CU (Production Builds) 15063.296 yesterday, did a clean fresh install on all PCs, all worked fine for 24 hours, now today I cannot see all the machines in the Network Hub, and can't access the shared files and drives, but
    the shared Program services (AutoCAD/Tally Licensing) and printer sharing works, but can't access other PCs drives and files manually. What gives?

    Everything was working fine yesterday after update, suddenly file and folder sharing stopped ? The furk?

    I have the same issue as well. I also did a fresh install of Windows 10 and the only workaround for this was to use the IP address and then it saw the share and was happy. Otherwise, I cannot get to any share using the computer name. I'm assuming something
    with DNS is involved here but that's just a shot in the dark. Hopefully MS will fix whatever this problem is and soon preferably before they put out a bunch of new "enhancements" in the fall Windows Creators update in October.

    MS, if you're listening / reading this, please fix these network bugs before proceeding with any new features. P L E A S E........

    See Anyone else notice the network issues with Windows 10 Creator's edition? to
    add hundreds of other individuals' voices that are having similar types of problems.

    Thanks.

    Load regedit with admin rights and browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\ then double click on MaintainServerList and change the value from "Auto" to "No" and restart the computer, see if that helps, it helped me with the same issue.
