Hello, I changed routers recently, and am now using a Linksys Velop 2 node mesh network. Everything appears working, except I am no longer able to see any of my network pcs in the Network folder on Win 10.

Prior with my old router, I could see my desktop pc, and my nas from my laptop which I most commonly use. Now all thats showing up is my laptop. I have a mapped drive to my nas, and I can still access my nas like that, but I can't see it via the network.

I have SMB turned on in windows, and as stated, it was working perfectly with my old setup - I had 4 items in my Local Network, all of which were accessible and sharing. I don't know how to resolve this. Thanks

Thanks Colin, checking out these links now... I actually posted my question in the Linksys forums also, and all they keep telling me to do is send them an email with my info..... =(

When this has happened to me, it was because with a new router it's a new network. And the default for a new network is "Public". You have to make your local network "Private", and turn on network discovery...then you'll see the other computers in windows explorer Network folder.
