    Computers not showing on network


    Network only shows the computer that is being used ,it does not show any other computers on the network.
    Cannot network other computers.
    Creating Home group does not solve the problem.
    Network troubleshooter does not show up anything
    Each computer is WORKGROUP setting
    All computers connect to internet.

    First thing is make sure that all firewalls are shut down on all computers, or set to "Trust" your Home LAN. The second thing to check is to make sure that all computers are set to "WORKGROUP" for the group they belong to on the LAN. The next is run Farbar's Mini Toolbox and Service Scanner, which you can download at Searching for farbar When you run Mini Toolbox, only check the first five items, before you run it.

    Post back if still having issues. There is also a Tutorial in "Tutorials about Network troubleshooting. Even if you are not sharing anything. The computers should still show up in Windows Network.
