Computer not showing up on LAN. Can't ping other devices.

I cannot connect to my printer nor to any other devices on my LAN. However internet is working completely fine. I can ping nothing but my router. I have a windows 10 pro computer.

 

Please help!

I've had similar problems before when the computer I want to access is set to a public network. Try setting it to private if you don't already have it on that.

Must be a a firewall issue. Try to disable it and let us know

Tried disabling it but no luck there.

Is the PC connected to a wireless guest network? Is the PC plugged into a DMZ port on the router?

 

By default both of those are configured to not allow devices to talk to each other.
