    Trying to help brother connect new PC to his current home network. His new PC is HP 880-177cn with windows 10 home. The OS is an initial install. He has a Norton Core router. PC 2, glen2 new PC, can see and transfer files from PC 1, glen1 current PC, but PC 1 can not see PC 2. Tried setting up workgroup but still no change. When checking Network ID in the change workgroup area, it is grayed out. PC 2 thinks it is an office PC and we can not change it do to “ network id” is grayed out. Checked network services and client * selection is turned off. Can not change this either because the tab is grayed out. Both computers can connect to the Internet with no problems. All worked fine until changed to the new Norton core router. Old router is a Netgear. I myself have a Norton Core router and it connects and works good. Any suggestions?

    I have looked through most of the current listed threads but could not find one to match.
