Changing system name broke direct ethernet connection

I have two windows 10 desktops wired together with ethernet they are going through a switch. But that switch does not have internet. System A has wifi, with internet access. System B is only connected to system A. I shared files over network in file explorer. But then I changed the name of system B, through the system info settings. And now it won't show up in network on System A or B, but it can still access system A. I can still ping bewtween the two systems. But I can't see System B. Why did changing the name of this system break my connection? How do I fix this issue?
