    2 network problems w/ new Windows 10 PC.. firewall?


    So I had a Surface pro 4 running Windows 10 Pro and never had any of these problems, but I just got a Surface Pro (5th gen) running Windows 10 Pro and I'm having two network problems out of the box, and I'm wondering if it could be due to default firewall settings?

    Problem 1:

    I make a call through Gmail (Google Voice) and it dials out and I can hear them and apparently they can hear me for about 3 seconds and then as if something mutes my mic they can no longer hear me. Has happened multiple times over a few days (only have had the PC about 3 days). I think it happened every time I've made a call.

    Problem 2:

    Can't find my wireless printer on the network (EPSON WF-2630) . I have a Mac mini that can find it and print, my old Surface Pro 4 could find it and print. My new surface pro can't find it at all..

    I'm guessing maybe this is some sort of firewall settings to explore? It says I have windows defender firewall on for domain network, private network, and public network. I am only using my fios wifi at the moment.

    Any ideas?

    Does it run on a domain if it does the domain may place restrictions on the system

    Those are not Firewall issues. Your LAN should be Private on all machines.
