My laptop is missing from my tabs. How to get it back?

You know how you can click on "show tab overview" in Safari to show what tabs you have open on your other devices? Well, my laptop isn't showing up. How come?
I can see my iPad and iPhone from my desktop, but not my laptop. I'm sure it's a simple fix, but what??

Is your laptop logged into iCloud?

Does the other Mac show in the Finder window sidebar? Sometimes it is a wifi problem. One is on 2.5 GHz and the other on 5GHz.

Are you signed into the same Apple ID on both?

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER

The wifi suggestion might be the problem. We did update our router recently and I know they used to see each other. Oy. How do I fix that? I usually defer hardware problems to Waitin4CJ and he's not here right now. I'm more comfortable troubleshooting software.

Update: I went to System Prefs and set both machines to the 5G network (one was on 2.4G) but it's still not showing up.
I think I only have one user ID but I'll verify that next.

Update: Yeah, just one user ID. Both on the cloud. I don't know what the problem is. It doesn't show in the Finder sidebar either. Now what?
