Ah, Windows network problems... occasionally it is impossible to fix them and they just go away by themselves... go figure. Do not blame the Stick, It can as well be local router problem. Rebooting it helps.

Intel Compute Sticks have quite bad WiFi adapter built in them. Whenever possible get a USB dongle with Ethernet port built in, and use it on Stick's USB 2.0 port! to get the device 'wired'. Alternatively, get external USB WiFi adapter. Both aren't that expensive, around $20.
