    Home network doesnt work after windows update and replacing router


    I have a desktop, laptop and wireless printer for personal use. In the past the laptop and desktop saw each other and I was able to transfer files. I didn't use home groups I just entered the computer name and password
    After a windows update and replacing a router my computers couldn't see the printer and I went through installation process to use the printer.
    When I open up file explorer on the desktop it sees the laptop but when I try to access the laptop the i get the enter network Credentials dialogue popup and I enter the name and password I get incorrect name or password
    When I open up file explorer on the laptop it doesnt see the desktop

    I am at a lost I was able to set up the network before
    I have a netgear router r6080 and use windows defender atm. The router I was using died

    :)

  3. 950XL Wifi / Router Problem

    As an update. I hard reset the phone, once again and it didn't happen after that. I did eventually replace the home router with another (Cisco) brand router but it had been stable for about 6 days with the original router after the hard reset of the phone.
    It hasn't occurred with any wireless network since.

    Hope that helps others.

    Might be the SMBv1 Uninstalled by Update 1709 issue?

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...r-version-1709


    It certainly isn't a "friendly" write up that is for sure .....written for IT Pros I think but I found I only needed the SMB1.0 Client re-enabled for things to be fine again after playing with different settings.

    T.D.L :
    FCU disables and removes SMBv1 after 15days if it hasn't been used, (eg turning on my old Synology NAS i found I couldn't connect to do a backup), But you can turn it back on in:

    Control Panel>Programs and Features>Turn Windows Features on and Off>SMB 1.0/CIFS and checking just the SMB1.0 Client box worked for me.

    Once you do this Win10 will no longer disable it automatically as it assumes you need it, if you it turned back on.

    AFAIK this issue with SMBv1 was mainly related to WinXP and is not an issue on Win10 , so personally I was not worried about turning it back on.

    Or if you need pics ? .....do the reverse of this article
    How to Disable SMBv1 and Protect Your Windows PC From Attack


    For Others to try 1st Per Microsoft ..........

    Explorer Network Browsing

    The Computer Browser service relies on the SMBv1 protocol to populate the Windows Explorer Network node (also known as "Network Neighborhood"). This legacy protocol is long deprecated, doesn't route, and has limited security. Because the service cannot function without SMBv1, it is removed at the same time.

    However, if you still have to use the Explorer Network in home and small business workgroup environments to locate Windows-based computers, you can follow these steps on your Windows-based computers that no longer use SMBv1:



    • Start the "Function Discovery Provider Host" and "Function Discovery Resource Publication" services, and then set them to Automatic (Delayed Start).
    • When you open Explorer Network, enable network discovery when you are prompted.

    All Windows devices within that subnet that have these settings will now appear in Network for browsing. This uses the WS-DISCOVERY protocol. Contact your other vendors and manufacturers if their devices still don't appear in this browse list after the Windows devices appear. It is possible they have this protocol disabled or that they support only SMBv1.

    Note We recommend that you map drives and printers instead of enabling this feature, which still requires searching and browsing for their devices. Mapped resources are easier to locate, require less training, and are safer to use. This is especially true if these resources are provided automatically through Group Policy. An administrator can configure printers for location by methods other than the legacy Computer Browser service by using IP addresses, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Bonjour, mDNS, uPnP, and so on.
