I have three computers that all used to live comfortably together on a single wired win 7 network. With Win 10, one of the machines says that it is on "newnet"; another says it's on "network1"; and the third says it's on "network2" AND "network3" (using two different ethernet adapters. As a result, these machines can't see each other. At various times, for reasons unknown, another machine may become briefly visible to the others, but then it goes away again.


Is there any way I can get all these machines to work together? I should note that they are all theoretically members of "workgroup".

The firewall of the computer can turn off discovery future of Windows OS disable firewall to see issue resolves.

Open "Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Centre --> Advanced sharing settings" and turn on "Turn on network discovery" for each computer.
Open "Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Centre --> Change adapter settings" right click the network card select properties and make sure there is check marks on Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver and Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder check boxes.
