I have 2 problems. One is getting the 2 to see each other and the other is getting my HP to stay asleep and wake up and have the network work once I turned on sharing.
I turned on File sharing and put a share at the root of the Data drive. The HP has 2 Hard drives because I always use a hard drive for the OS & programs and a drive for the data. I have taken the check off of "Allow this device to wake the computer." in the properties in device manager. When I wake the computer the network is not available. The first time I renewed the IP address and that fixed it. Today it did not. I had taken the check off of "Allow the compuer to turn off this device" but put that check back on after today's incident. I shut the computer down and the modem & router & turned everything back on & I'm back on the internet.
I will respond more once I know what else you need to know to continue on from here.
