None of my devices are showing on "Network"

When I click "Network"nothing is showing up, even though 3 phones, a tablet, and an Imac are all connected to this network. When I go to routerlogin, it see's all of them. What could be the issue? I am running Windows 8 pro, I posted there but no one seemed to answer, so thought i'd try here as well.

Usually just turning on Network Discovery in the Advanced Sharing settings will get those devices to show up.
