I do have a WDC MycloudEX2Ultra in my home LAN.
The NAS is working fine.
I can work with the NAS from my Win7-laptop or I can use my Win10-laptop.
I find the NAS in the DHCP ip-table of my router
and I configured the DHCP for a static IP address for my NAS.
I can ping the NAS from my laptops.
And I can do drive mappings on my laptops with my NAS,
net use X: \192.168.1.nnn\share\ /user:username password
OK, so what is the problem ?
The problem is that the NAS device name is not seen on my network.
On the NAS, the devicename is “MycloudEX2Ultra”
but that name
- is not found in windows exlorer on my laptops.
- is not found in the computertab of my laptop.
- drive mapping:
net use X: \MycloudEX2Ultra\share\ /user:username password
is NOT working.
- Running tool WDAccess on my laptops is not finding the NAS.
On my laptops, in the TCP/IP-stack Netbios is enabled.
So what should be configured differently to enable the NAS-devicename to be advertised ?
