    Unable to Save Changes in Network & Sharing Center


    I've been trying to set up an old Savin 9033 printer through the company's router, but I couldn't find the network it's set up on from any other computer.

    So I pull up Network & Sharing, see that Network Discovery is turned off.

    I check it, go to click on "Save Changes" and nothing happens. I click it a few times and it kicks me back to the previous page, nothing saved. No password prompt or anything.

    I double checked that all the appropriate services are running (DNS Client, SSDP Discovery, UPnP Device Host, Function Discoveryr Resource Publication, etc.) and made sure Network Discovery was allowed through Windows Firewall.

    Still nothing. Anyone able to point out the glaring, obvious mistake I've made?

    Hello Currtis, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if you may be able to use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to turn on Network Discovery in an elevated command prompt.
