    Default Computers can't see each other in Windows 8

    Hi guys,

    My sister and i are connected from laptops wirelessly, and the other is connected on a wired desktop. Everytime all we had been doing before was one of us would create a server, and it would show up in the LAN list for the other two of us. We can browsering the internet and playing games without any set up needed, just install.

    However, this morning we went to play again and no servers show up for the LAN. And there is no response when i try to ping any other computer on the internet.

    If I go to the network devices, nothing shows up. However, if I go into my router I can see all devices, wired and wireless.

    Has anyone experienced the same in past? if you can come up a fix is much better.

    many thanks in advance.

    Hi Sunyekerry,

    I just stumbled upon this because I have been trying to set up networking for the computers in my house. My mum wanted an old computer (xp) to be connected up so we could access the files, no worries for that.. She could connect from her new computer (mac) but seeing as I was setting things up I tried to access the files from my computer (windows 8) and couldn't. I noticed I couldn't see any computer from mine, not even another windows 8 computer. When checking from that computer, same problem occurred.. Couldn't see any other computers. Tried alot of things, read alot of articles.. I also tried connecting both windows 8 PC's together, but the computer was telling me that there was no Homegroup available... Hopefully you have figured your issue out by now, if so... It could help me!
