New installs not showing on network.

I have a desktop and a laptop that I have reinstalled Windows 10 Pro on and set the folders to sharing with "Everyone" read/write and network discovery is turned on and basically same setting in my other older computers running the same windows 10 Pro. I look at network in any one of my computers and can see the computers with the older installs but not the newer installs. The settings from new to old look identical. Any ideas?

Go to Run and type ncpa.cpl and press Enter.
Right-click on the network connection and select Properties.
Click on the Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/TPv4).
Under General tab, click on the Advanced button.
Click on the WINS tab and uncheck to Enable LMHOSTS Lookup.
Also under NetBIOS setting, select Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP.
Click on OK, restart the system and check if you have an access to the files on the Windows 10 system.
