on my windows 7 pc I could see all the devices on our network - we have several on our home network

on win8 I go to network or network and sharing and ONLY see device physically connected to the win8 pc.

all of our devices are connected to the same router - it is a netgear

is there a way to fix this?

You need to go into network and sharing and turn on file and print sharing under advanced settings

I went to network and sharing
change advanced network and sharing - this is what I saw

It is turned on for private(current profile)
turned off for Guest or Public
turned off for All Networks

but I still don't see them
MCafee ran and I saw all of the devices when it ran

Turn it on for all networks and see if it works

You can always change it

Make sure network discovery is turned on also
