RetroPie is not displayed in the Windows network environment
Yeah, @cyperghost is right, didn't even notice I put the wrong address in the

@mitu It's nice to observe synergy at work. :)
@cyperghost The communication check failed to detect the retropie node.
Check the host name and try again.
@mitu AP Isolation disabled
@xabib2302 If pinging
192.168.100.5still doesn't work (i.e. you get host not found) then the same comment as before applies - your RetroPie device at
192.168.100.5is not reachable from your PC, so there's nothing RetroPie can do. Check if you have any firewall/Antivirus(?) installed on your PC and maybe temporarily disable them while repeating the
pingtest to see if they interfere.
@mitu The SmartScreen and firewall disabled and still the result is zero

@xabib2302 Can you access the console of Retropie? (i.e. connect a keyboard to your Pi and press F4 in Emulation Station)
Then, you could check how it looks from Retropie's side with the command
ifconfig # NOT ipconfig like in Windows
or you could try to ping your router or Windows from the Pi:
ping 192.168.100.1 # or whatever your router's IP is ping 192.168.100.2 # or whatever your PC's IP is
As a desperate measure, you could even test if your Pi responds to pings by pinging itself:
Remember, all commands are to be issued on the Pi's own console you land in after pressing F4 in Emulation Station.
Unfortunately, my knowledge about solving network issues is very limited. The above commands are meant to provide further information an to rule out some unexpected problems on the Pi's side.

Not sure your having ssh or samba issues.
For ssh (you can do a reinstall):
sudo apt-get -y purge openssh-server
sudo apt-get -y install openssh-server
sudo nano etc/samba/smb.conf
Just change the workgroup (and should be find in Windows)
