Windows 7: Unable to see Router in Network from wireless Win 7 laptop

Unable to see Router in Network from wireless Win 7 laptop

Hi all

On my (Hardwired) Win 7 desktop and a wireless Win 8 laptop I can see my RT-AC68U router in the network (1st image) also showing my win 7 laptop is connected, however I am unable to see the Router on my wireless Win 7 Laptop (2nd image) although I am connected to the router and can use the internet freely. There must be some settings in Win 7 to enable me to see it. I have a 2TB drive connected to the router containing may films and TV programs, it would be nice to view them on all devices. I've looked through the tutorials and used the search but but generally the search comes up with problems connecting to the router.

Edit: Just connected my spare Win 7 laptop and that can see the Router??? Baffled

win 8 32 bit
 
 

A few things can cause this
is the laptop in the same workgroup as the other pcs
is its ip range the same
from a cmd prompt type
netsh wlan show network

can you see it there?

I've seen very similar problems a few times before with this same router and it was fixed with the latest firmware. ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download RT-AC68U
