Ok, those are local IP's and there is absolutely no reason to hide them.

It might be a DNS related issue. If memory serves me correct I believe Windows WORKGROUP file sharing will use multi-cast DNS to advertise computer names out to populate the network tab when there is no DNS configured. Depending on when Windows sends out the advertisements will depend on how many shares can be viewed via the Network tab.

Does access via IP address instead of computer name work? E.g \\192.168.1.100\{ShareName}

If someone can correct me then please do

If it is a DNS issue then you have 2 possible solutions, set the DNS server as the IP address of your router or manually configure the computer to IP address names in the HOSTS file on every single machine.
