I have an access problem.
I have a WDMyCloudDL2100 and most PCs (2-4) run windows but an occasional mac is connected.
I have a small setup with an WindowsXP computer and 3 win7pro laptops, connected on the wlan router.
I have all files as public except one folder called “private”, which is accessed with the only password account there is - the “admin” login.
There are no other passwords planned as access is authorized with the network access, with the exception of that 1 folder that only the “NAS admin” can access.
Everything worked fine in the beginning and “fell apart” within a day or two on 2 separate but identical small networks.
I have 2 scenarios that I cannot figure out:
This goes from no problems all works fine - to the below scenarios right in the middle of a normal working day (no one changed anything) or the next day when you turn everything on in the morning.
1.) When I click on Network and then on the blue symbol for MYWDCloudDL2100, it says I’m not authorized to access (no name/password request option)
2.) It asks for a name & password, which I tip in and then comes a password request - which it also does not accept.
Since I’ve experienced this same behavior on 2 separate small networks, I was hoping someone else had this issue who could help.
There are really only 2 possible passwords in the system:
- router password
- admin on the NAS
It would also be ok if I had a setup where anyone who had access to the router - had access to the entire NAS (no private folder), if this may be what causing some of the problem.
The NAS was on the second network system not connected directly to the router but a hub, but it worked perfectly fine the first day.
All the unplugging tricks I’ve already tried ^^ sometimes it helps but not for long.
Please if anyone can help here it would be (after 2 weeks of trying) a great help
