W10 network issues



All of my PCs at home are running windoze 10. All have been set up with file sharing on the network. My main file server is hardwired to the router as is Wife's PC. My lappy and desktop PC are both connected via Wifi along with phones etc. All works well until I restart a computer. Typically my lappy. Suddenly my file server disappears off the network. Wife's PC even cannot see it on occasion. Sometimes a screen refresh will fix it, other times, I must open the network and search for the computer and drill down through a million drives and folders to find the folder that should be accessible via shortcut on the desktop. File and print sharing is on and password protected sharing is off. All are connected to the same "private" network. Occasionally I must re-start the modem to get it all working as it should again. TODAY, however, I had to restart every PC on the network to update AVG and install any missing Windoze updates (on one machine only - not the file server). Everything came back up, except the file server. Stupid thing is, the File server can see the other PCs on the network and can log into those, including my laptop. My laptop, however can only see the other PCs and not the File server. I'm running around like a chook with it's head cut off. Any suggestions as to what I could try. Even the other hard wired PC cannot see the file server though, if I log onto the Router all machines show up in the DCHP table.

We sometimes overlook the obvious...
