In the Windows Firewall, left pane, did you try to Troubleshoot my network or Restore Defaults.

Also verify in Device Manager if any problems showing up for your Network Adapter and are your drivers up to date.

Yep i did all that, so i have no choice but to turn the firewall off. I don't think it is a coincidence that this happened right after the latest big windows update

You could use a system restore point prior to installing those updates and reinstall them one by one until you find the culprit if that is the case.

I don't know what update did it, but it was during the june updates, i tried uninstalling each update but i remove one then i have to restart my computer. i did that with one update. restarted the firewall, computer was visible but then disappeared again an hour later. this is ridiculous ,there are like 15 updates to check, that will take forever
