Hi and welcome

First I suspect your headache is being caused byusing the homegroup model for networking. homegroup is for win 7 envirnments only. In mixed environments 'workgrooup' mode is both more reliable and easier to configure. to verofy that all you need to do is to create a new network using 'workgroup' model. If the problem is resolved you then can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.

If that doesnt fix it we could use the iutput from ipconfig /all. use the snipping tool (type snipping in search) to make a screen shot and attach it to the reply form using the attachment icon (shaped like a paperclip)

]Good luck and let us know if yoou need help
