Hi all.
In a nutshell.
Windows 10 Pro laptop. WiFi. & Windows 7 Ultimate desktop. Ethernet.
There is never a problem with the desktop 'seeing' the laptop.
There is always a problem with the laptop 'seeing' the desktop.
If I restart the laptop then maybe I can log into the desktop.
But usually all I get in the top listing of the laptop network devices is the laptop I'm on, no desktop.
I do see my desktop in the media devices section.
Any clues?

Also, why do I have a csm_biscuit AEOBC Amazon device showing?
I have zero Amazon devices.
Cheers

Is the network on the Laptop defined as a private network ? This article specifically identifies WIFI, but the process is the same for wired -- https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/make-a-wi-fi-network-public-or-private-in-windows-10-0460117d-8d3e-a7ac-f003-7a0da607448d
