Access to other devices on your home network is prevented when you run Avast VPN.  A VPN is a public network.

What is a private network?  https://www.howtogeek.com/245982/whats-the-difference-between-private-and-public-networks-in-windows/

A private network enables (allows) network discovery features.  You can see other devices on your network.
