  1. Laptop drops off local network after reboot

    Hi there,

    After a recent update (not sure which one), I notice that my laptop running Windows 10 64bit Home Single Language version 1809 drops off of the network after every reboot.

    It was previously working perfectly.

    I cannot see it under Networks on my Windows 10 desktop.

    I have checked the service called "Function Discovery Resource Publication" which shows as running and set to manual trigger.

    I discovered that if I stop and start this service, the laptop appears on my desktop!
    Everything works as normal again until I have to reboot.

    The laptop is set to a Private network and File & Printer Sharing is on.

    I have tried changing the service to automatic and automatic with trigger.

    After a reboot the service is showing as running but it's still not visible on my network.

    The ONLY way is to stop and start the aforementioned service and then the laptop instantly appears like magic!

  2. Network dropping?

    I run AOL Instant Messenger and about every hour I get dropped from the program. I can still browse the web and I have even gone to the extent of PINGING the server I was connected to and it pings just fine even when I get dropped. I changed out my network card thinking that it may be a network card issue and that didnt resolve the dropping out of AIM.

    I have also tried changing my network cable that goes into the back of the computer. I have power cycled the modem and router for my local network. I have also uninstalled and installed the latest version. This also happens to another one of my programs (but not necessarily at the same time). I have one other computer and one laptop on the same network and i've never had this issue on them.

    Any other suggestions to diagnose what is going on? Could this be some piece of hardware such as memory or hard drive that could cause this?

    No firewall either. Running Windows XP Pro!

    #######UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE########

    April 27 2010 UPDATE
    tried a different version of java and also plugged directly into the modem and all night long the program DID NOT drop. This means I changed two variables.

    Variable 1 ) Changed java version. It is possible the java version I was running didn't work very well
    Variable 2 ) Plugged directly into the modem bypassing the router.

    I'm going to hook my router back up (putting variable 2 back) and see if it drops. If it does, what in the world could be the problem as to me it would seem it would have something to do with variable 2? I've tried 3 different routers and the other systems on the network don't have this issue. PLEASE HELP!
