Hello All,

I have a bit of an issue. I have two printers, a brother and Lexmark. Had them on the old home network system within windows 10, connect through a base desktop which was connected over Wi-Fi itself. Everything was working fine at that point.

Unfortunately when the April 2018 update came out and it stripped the "home net" or whatever it was called feature, it also made the printers not want to sync. I have:

-Walked through Microsoft's instructions multiple times.
- uninstalled and reinstalled the printers multiple times
- attempted a print server, which didn't work

At this point I am looking for options. The desktop specs are:
Intel i7- 3770 3.4 th a
16gb ram
64 bit windows 10

Printer #1
Brother HL 3170CDW

Printer #2
Lexmark Pro Prevail 700
