Computers and phone on network not able to see each other in network view

Hello,

 

I am unable to get my two windows 10 computers to see each other or my phone in the network view in explorer. I'm using a netgear AC1900 C6300BD all-in-one modem/router supplied to me by Cox. When I connect to the modem from a browser, I can see all the devices connected.

 

Here is what I have done:

- I have tried pinging the computers. Command prompt says "destination host unreachable"

- I have set both the computers' network type to private

- I have turned both computers' windows firewall completely off

 

What the heck am I missing??

Thank you for helping

   Is that your only router?  And all your devices are connect directly
to it?

   What are the IP addresses of all these devices?  As usual, showing
actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.  Copy+paste is your friend.

It is the only router. All the devices are connected to it, and I know that they are, because I can log into the router and see them all connected.

   What about "192.168.0.4" to "192.168.0.5"?

 

   "unreachable" is not what I'd expect for those addresses.  I also
don't understand "unreachable" and "0% loss".

 

   Look at an "ipconfig" report.  Is your subnet mask different from
"255.255.255.0"?  (If so, then why?)  Copy+paste of a whole "ipconfig"
report might be interesting.

   You may be over-optimistic.
