A good first test would be to make sure you can ping the router from both machines. It should have an address in the same subnet as both of them

Thanks Brian, I will report back, have a bit more setting up to do, I can’t believe it, I can’t be sure but I may have had the vpn running when I was trying to ping the other machine as well L

It was never going to work with the vpn running but also, the network location needed to be set.

             I cannot recall whether this is one of those changes that requires a restart to take effect or not, but do report back after you've restarted.
             By the way, I created a Feedback Hub suggestion:  Settings Search should return something when searching on "Public" or "Private"
Anyone who agrees that the appropriate network settings where switching the Network Profile should be returned should have a look and either upvote, comment, or both.
