I am on W10 and all my home computers are in a home network (cabled).
after each w10 update my shared drives/ folders disappear from" Network"
If I enable protocol SMB1/ my folders/ network reappear and stay even if I disable protocol SMB1.
Can anyone enlighten me?
Perhaps i was not clear enough
I am in a home network, cabled;it's been in place for at least two years,s and in windows 10, all recent updates done
I AM NOT USING THE SMB1 PROTOCOL! as I am aware it poses security problems.
Every one or two months (perhaps coinciding with w10 updates) my network dissappear!
Parameters (shared folders,discovery etc) have not changed .
the only solution I have found is to "cycle" SMB1 protocol.
I enable it, restart the pc, my network is back, I disable SMB protocol, restart the pc, and my network stays there for a month or two...
Computer browser only listed under services if I enable SMB1!
function discovery provider host and FD resource publications are enabled discovery services does not exist as such, or I cannot find it, everything else is as you suggested . I can access my shared printers only files disappear, files and printer sharing are obviously enabled in sharing options
