  1. Home Network - computers won't connect


    Since the Win 10 update to 20H2, my 2 Win 10 computers won't file share. In other words I see them in Windows explorer but when I try to access them I get the error I do not have permission to access the folders and C drive on DANNY-PC. The other says can't access DANNY-PC-2 the network path was not found.

    I'm running Norton Security and have set the trusted devices with the specific IP and MAC address for both computers. Everything was working before the update.

    Thanks for any ideas to solve the issue.
    Danny

    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
