  2. Wifi network not showing up in list of available networks

    Hi,

    My name is Angel. I am an Independent Advisor. Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    If your computer can connect to the previous WiFi networks automatically, but there are no network names showing on the network list, then this could be an issue with the network discovery. To check if this is the case, open the Control Panel, go to Network
    and Internet, click Network Sharing Center, and click Advanced sharing settings, then check if the Network discovery is on. If it's not, select Turn on network discovery, then click Save changes.

    If the issue persist after enabling the network discovery, you can follow other helpful steps from this article: Fix network connection issues in Windows 10.

  3. 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.

    Network Problem

    Hi Shalei,



    One of the possible reason that there are no network names showing on the network list is due to issue with the network discovery. For us to isolate the issue, we'll need the following details:

    • Is this only happening to your computer? Have you tried to connect different device to see if the issue persists?
    • Did you make any changes to the computer prior to this issue?

    To help you with this issue, follow these steps to check the Network Discovery:



    • Right-click the Start button then select Control Panel.
    • Click Network and Internet, and then Network and sharing.
    • Click on the Change advance sharing settings
      option on the left pane, then check if Network discovery is turn on.


    If issue persists, follow further troubleshooting steps on how to
    Fix network connection issues in Windows 10.




    Update us with the outcome.
