What operating system on the computer that is having vision issues? How is it connected to the router?

I assume you mean that the computer is unable to ping any of the other computers by IP address. What, exactly, happens when you try?

Can you successfully ping the router from this computer? If so, able to login to the router?

When you first connected the problem Win 10 to the network, did you choose Public or Private network? You can go to Settings > Network & Internet > Change connection properties and set it back to Private. which should then allow you to see other PC in the LAN.

When you say you can't see other PCs, do you mean that they have shared folders which you can't reach ?

Can you see the other computers when you temporarily disable your Antivirus and firewall ?
Do the other computers have a useraccount with a password or not ?
