You can post an error log, just post it as a spoiler, so it doesnt take up a ton of space.
I've had a lot of various network issues within my own network. In fact, to this day, I still cant get my server to accept a connection from a PC connecting through the internet without the aid of Hamachi. But I have a few ideas you can try. First, how are you trying to connect to the LAN server? Are you adding it as a multiplayer server, or a Direct Connect? I would recommend trying both, and entering the host info in the following formats just to see if they work:
Windows computer name (ex: Magmatic) (Which is what I named my server)
IP address (ex: 192.168.1.105)
IP address with port (ex: 192.168.1.105:25565)
If none of those help either through direct connection or adding as a multiplayer server, I would work on the Windows side of things more. Make sure your file and printer sharing is working, make sure you're together on the same homegroup. You may even have to go as far as to add a user account on his machine so you can set permissions to access it. I've seen that happen as an issue before when one PC is running windows 7/8, while another is running windows 10.
thanks Ill look into those suggestions. My husband said maybe my computer just cant handle it lol so maybe a new computer is in my future. I know its not the home group because my son and him are not in the home group. I need to fix the home group. Our printer and file sharing is on. we all have 10 could be any thing with that, I will try that which you said above
Thank you so much
it wont let me post it as a spoiler too long lol bigger then 30000
also I was doing both multiplayer and direct connect both kicked me
No problem. Good luck, and godspeed. I hate me some network issues :)
Also regarding the homegroup... You said their machines arent in the homegroup. Is yours? Cuz homegroup is like a high school clique. If you're in it, everyone not in it is lame, and not worth talking to. Apparently. :)
we where all in it but somehow now none of our computers have it. we have the option to join it but the password isnt working so I think I have to shut them all down and create another one and then one by one add the other 2 computers. its frustrating but we at least all have win 10 now
