Windows 8.1 x64 can't see other computers on network


New Member
Hello I hope you can help us.

I have tried searching for at a solution, but I haven’t found one.

My OS is Windows 8.1 x64 (think it is home edition) with an HP Envy computer.

I have two windows server 2003, and 5 computers 4 with windows 8.1 and 1 with Mac OS X.

The computers with windows 8.1 32 bit (x86) can see the servers and the other computers that are connected to our Wi-Fi network. But there are two computers with windows 8.1 x64, which can’t see the servers and the other computers and devices that are connected to the same Wi-Fi.

I have looked at the solution found: http://www.eightforums.com/network-...ccess-w8-w8-computer-cant-see-w2k-server.html
(Have also tried post #8 in that thread too, but that din't work either)

But I can’t find Local Security Policy, and I have read it is because we don’t have windows 8.1 pro.

Why is it only the x64 windows 8.1 computers that can’t see other devices on the network?

Do you have a solution that can solve this problem?

If you need more information to solve the problem, just ask :)
