Unable to see server over WiFi or Cat 6 cabling using WD Players

I am using Windows 2012 R2 and have just recently had a windows upgrade. I am using WD Media players to stream my movies from my HP Proliant Server.  My problem is that I can no longer see my media server's VM from any of my WD players. I have had my internet provider check my internet and there are no issues. I can see my my server on my Windows 10 desktop too. But I noticed on my server I can see my server name under network. However, it doesn't show on the top right side of my screen (see attachment). I tried resetting  my modem  and  then my Nighthawk router in that sequence. And still I my WD players are unable to connect to my windows shares. I have even tried changing my sharing options from on to off and back again and no joy.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Possible issue is that smbv1 was disabled and your wd media player lost access to the share.
Or similarly, your system had smbv1 disabled do it can not see it on the network...........

Or the wd media player is offline.

Will this be on the desktop or the server? I checked the desktop and smbv1 is checked for client.
on the server since your WD media players need to access a share on a server.
Have not used, but do you have navigation on demand play to see whether you can go through the media player and see whether you can explore the directory from which you want the media to play?
How do you check on Windows 2012 R2 server?
