Shortcuts work, Still can't see network

By stepsimon ·
I have a peer to peer network of 15 computers running versions of Windows from Vista to 8.

Yesterday access to the network from the Network icon in the left sidebar of Explorer, stopped working. I changed out our main switch and everything came back. This morning it was all gone again. I changed the switch back and everything came back, but went out shortly after.

Then I found that shortcuts to specific shared folder across the network, still operated normally.

Also, searching through Explorer by entering "\\computername" in the address bar works as well.

These people don't like change, and they will not rest until they can click on the network button and can see everything on the network.
