I have found this answer: the net view command only displays devices with file and printer sharing enabled. More in-depth list below:

net view returns the computers in the current domain or network. This list will only show computers that have file and printer sharing enabled.
net view /all shows all shares available, including administrative shares like C$ and admin$
net view /domain:google.com will list all of the sharing computers in the google.com domain
net view /all /domain shows all shares (regular and administrative) in the domain

***note: this can* be blocked for non-admin users (which is why it doesn't work on some networks or will simply say that a network path was not found
