When I try and view the NAS through W8.1 Exploer using Network/MYBOOKLVE/Public on occassion it asks for usernamer/password from Windows security (which I’ve not setup). After a few attempts it goes away and lets me in. If I view via the IP (192.168.2.09/Public) it always works straight away and then usually makes the way above work straight away too. It’s like sometimes it’s trying to connect and when it deosn’t quite manage it, it brings the username/password box. But, sometimes it works first time
Any advice as to the best way to get past this? I could just use the IP address but its set to dynamic and would be irritated if all my shortcuts are based on an IP that changes. I guess I could use a static IP but have noticed that if I have to reset then they would all be lost. Not the end of the world as I’d just set it up again but I can’t help thinking that it shouldn’t be this way,
Is this a common issue and which way to most people view it/set it up?
Thanks in advance.
