I have a setup of a tower PC and a Notebook both using Windows 10 and both connected via cable to my router. Previously they were in the same home group and thus able to find each other in the Explorer.
But now that the last Windows 10 update has removed the home groups neither of them can find the other. I have checked the network detection and file- and printer sharing options and they're all set up properly, meaning
guest and public are both active. Sharing public folders in the
all networks section is disabled, though, but that shouldn't cause trouble.
Now, I think the problem is that both of the PCs are contained in their own network. In the
ethernet menu item in the settings I can see that my notebook is part of the
Todkaeppchen network, while my tower PC is in the
Network 2. Neither can find any other network and in the control panel I only have the option to create a new network, not join an existing one. So, how can I tell my tower PC to join the
Todkaeppchen network of my notebook?
I should note that I also have a WLAN network set up named
Todkaeppchen, which the notebook can connect to but not the tower. However, as it is set in the Ethernet section I don't think this is the root of the problem. Nothing changes whether my notebook is connected to the WLAN with the same name or not.
