I have 5 computers on a network, i cannot consistently connect to computers showing up on network. Sometimes I have access and other times I dont. I get the message Windows cannot access \\device name, check the spelling of the name, otherwise there might be a problem with your network. It then offers me to diagnose problem, but says it cannot identify the problem. My network is setup like this. Router in office, which has one computer connected to it. I then use an Ethernet cable on one output going to another room that connects to a switch that has the other computers. One of this computers in the other room is connect via WiFi and is not using the switch song dont think it could be a switch problem. I have watch many windows 10 videos and configured each pc with app,to pirate sharing and security settings. I dont think it is that as sometimes they will connect and I have access. All computers can access the office computer but the other computers cannot consistently access each other. Any ideas?
