Windows 8 is Unable to Detect my GoFlex Satellite or Wireless Plus.

The GoFlex Satellite and Wireless Plus network is unsecured by default and Windows 8 classifies it as Public. This means that detection and sharing is disabled for the network and the device will not be detected by Windows 8.To resolve the issue, turn on discovery services following these steps:
NOTE:You must have administrative rights to your Windows computer.
  1. Open the Windows Start Screen and type in Control. Then click on Control Panel.. 
  2. Enter Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Click on Change advanced sharing settings.
