No its not hopeless, lol

You will have to set it up for networking again, enable file sharing, that kind of thing.

Did you do this yourself the last time?

Oh I see, no I never had that happen before, didn’t realize it did “work” just not showing up on your end.

From your question it sounded like you just needed to set it up for networking again, sorry no, I can’t help you with that problem.
