        Every time Win 10 upgrades it kills my networking.  Everything running fine and then ….  Other PCs on the network don’t show up and the primary PC is listed as a media device.

        I’m getting tired “resetting” the network on all 3 PCs.  Any thoughts, suggestions, etc.

        Wired or wireless?

        Is it all PCs?

        Feature updates only or monthly cumulative updates?

        Check for new network drivers that may have been installed some of those are not really new, those come unbidden and unwanted as they cause harm instead of help.

        Install network drivers directly from manufacturer’s sites.
        Block Windows update from installing drivers.
