    Network discovery does not stay on - Windows 10 PC


    I have 2 windows 10 PCs - one is a Brix connected to the internet via a Fios router by ethernet. It has a USB printer attached to it. The other is a HP connected to the router over WiFi. Both are on a private network. Both can access the internet.


    I am trying to get the HP to see the Brix over the network (and the Brix's USB-attached LaserJet printer), but I cannot see the Brix using Explorer->network from the HP. This used to work till recently but it has stopped working. I can still see the HP from the Brix, and I can move files in a shared folder on the HP to the Brix. I checked all of the services (uPNP etc.) that vaious forums have listed, and set them to auto-start on both machines.


    The only strange thing I see is on the HP machine. Settings->Network and Internet->Network and Sharing Center->Change Advanced Sharing Setting -> Private (Current Profile) -> it is set to Turn Off Network discovery. I tried to change it to Turn On Network discovery but that does not "stick". Maybe this is the problem?


    Any help will be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you!

    :)

  2. Cannot keep Network Discovery Enabled.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the response.

    I would suggest that you change the settings in the Firewall to allow Network discovery so that the Firewall stays On while allowing the Network discovery to be enabled.

    Follow the steps.

    a . Open Control panel.

    b. Small icons from the drop down.

    c. Click on Windows Firewall.

    d. Click on Allow programs or feature through Firewall.

    e. Scroll the list and check Network Discovery.

    If you need additional assistance then let us know.

  3. Network Discovery will not stay on


    I have a strange problem and can't find a fix.

    I've lost the ability to connect to a Win 7 computer on my network. It has worked for a very long time but stopped working after I replaced my SSD on the Win 10 desktop computer. I cloned a new Samsung 860 1TB SSD drive from the old Samsung 850 512GB SSD drive using the Samsung Data Migration software. (This worked with one other exception. I have to reauthorize MS Office)

    I also have a Win 10 laptop on the network and am able to connect to it.

    In the Network and Sharing Center, Network Discovery will not stick in the On setting for Private and Guest or Public areas. It is On and stays On in the All Networks area.

    File and Printer sharing is on.

    I have looked at the threads in this forum as well as the following threads:
    Network Discovery will not stay on - Microsoft Community
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/...ring-center-in
    All of the services mentioned are turned on correctly .

    I pinged the Win 7 computer and get a correct ping.

    I can see the Win 7 computer in File Explorer but can't access it. (I get the window "Windows cannot access\\Win7). The detail is Error code 0x80070035.

    I ran the Windows network trouble shooter and it was unable to find the problem.

    I turned off both Windows Defender and Defender Firewall and this didn't fix the issue either.

    This seems very odd because I can access the Win 10 laptop but not the Win 7 desktop. The only thing that has changed since it worked correctly was the change and cloning of the Win 10 desktop SSD.

    Any suggestions?
