  1. Three Win10 Machines connected via switch


    I have one server, two pcs, a laptop and two xbox's all connected using the following network scheme:

    Modem > All-in-One Router > 8-port switch > everything else (server/pc from switch, phones/laptops via wireless)

    My question is: Why does my Network Explorer window not show all of lthe computers on the network, despite being able to RDP to all of them interchangeably. I have made sure that network discovery is on, I have made sure that the private network settings aren't glaringly obvious, I have tried to 'add' computer to network. Nothing seems to be a surefire way of being able to see all of the computers on the network at any given time.



    Is there a setting I am missing, or a piece of knowledge I am misunderstanding? Is a workgroup or domain required for those machines to all be discoverable reliably. This isn't a huge problem but it would be nice to know the explanation as to why it behaves this way.



    Currently, this is what I see: ---> Network List <--- There should be an additional 4 devices on that list. All 4 are on and connected to the same network.

    Cannot access Win10 machine via local network

    I am 'birthing' my first Win10 machine, OS V1809, and must have goofed something up...

    All machines in my home belong to the same Workgroup and the users/passwords are consistent across all machines. From my Win7 desktop, I:
    • Can access my Win10 machine, via Explorer, using its IP address
    • Can ping the Win10 machine using both its name and IP address
    • Cannot access the Win10 machine, via Explorer, using its name

    From the Win10 machine, I can see all other computers on the network and access all of them.

    I do not believe that this is a firewall issue as the issue persists when the firewall is disabled. I do believe that network and file sharing is enabled (but, I could be wrong). The issue exists with both the Ethernet and WiFi connections, so it is probably not interface-specific.

    Please suggest what I can do to resolve this issue. Thx.

    admin settings on Win10 for PC

    Hi Hamza,

    Is your PC connected to a domain network?

    If your are connected to a domain network and yet facing this issue, I would suggest you to try the following steps and check:

    Method1:

    First, I would suggest you to try switching your User account from a Microsoft account to a local account and check if the issue persists. Click on 'Settings', click on 'Accounts' and then click on "sign in with a local account' in the "your accounts' section.
    Restart the computer and switch back to a Microsoft account and check.

    If the issue persists, try these steps and check:

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
    • Type Powershell
    • Type the following in the Powershell prompt:

      $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest
    • Close the Powershell window
    • Reboot

    Try these and let us know the results.
