    how can I set up a network between 2 computers both running windows 10


    We had a homegroup network before I updated to a new computer running windows 10. Although both systems are running Windows 10 I have not been able to set up a network. Troubleshooter is no help at all. We have both WiFi and Ethernet systems running.


    Both computers are set to share files and printers.

    :)

  3. Network Communication problem with multiple computers

    Hi Jay,

    Thank you for responding.

    I suggest you to try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Network discovery might be blocking you from seeing other computers and devices on the network. Check if the Network discovery is turned on. If the network discovery setting on your computer is set to off, you
    won't see other computers and devices on the network.

    Steps to Turn on network discovery.

    • Press Windows key, type sharing and click on
      Manage advanced sharing settings.
    • Under Private, Network discovery, check mark the option
      Turn on network discovery.
    • Try the same on all the computers connected to the network.

    Method 2: If the issue still persists, run
    HomeGroup troubleshooter and check.

    HomeGroup troubleshooter finds and fix problems with viewing computers or shared folders in a HomeGroup.

    • Press Windows key, type troubleshooting
      and select it.
    • Click on View all in the left pane and click on
      HomeGroup
      .
    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of this issue for further assistance.

    how can I set up a network between 2 computers both running windows 10

    Unable to browse network computers.

    We suggest creating a new administrator user account by following the steps
    here
    . Make sure to use the same network settings that you used for your other computers, then check if you can connect to the home network. Since you also mentioned that Windows 10 was freshly installed on this particular computer, have you already downloaded
    the latest updates? The latest build for Version 1607 is 14393.1715, and 15063.608 for Version 1703. You can check the build version of your computer by following these steps:

    • Click Start.
    • Type winver and press Enter.

    If you don't have the latest updates, you can follow these steps to install them:

    • Click Start.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click Update & security.
    • Click Check for updates.

    If that doesn't work, we'd like screenshots of the network and file sharing settings of the computer that doesn't work, and the settings of one of your other computers that can connect and share files properly on the home network.
