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

Last Modified: 2019-12-31
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.
