Sorry no.

But the usual issue is the firewalls. Even with just 2 machines you may discover 3 firewalls to adjust. The reason I write no is not because I won't but there is NO STANDARD screens or click heres to follow.

But you can read this next link to follow along the issues of the firewalls and another GLITCH where they had to re-share the share.

Hope you find your way.

Sorry, I can't tell what you are seeing so I'd review the router docs again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
