Well, after several hours spent on it, I think I have managed to solve a lot of problems I bumped in with the N900 router.
But I still have one issue I can’t fix.
Here’s the problem.
I would like to access the files stored on a USB hard drive connected to the N900 to stream them on my Blu-Ray player.
The BR Player can access the network using Samba.
Once powered up, it lists my N900 routeur as a file server.
But if I try to connect to it, it asks for an ID, and whatever setting, I always get an error message “User and/or password unknown”.
I have set the N900 to share the USB content only to a special account : no go with the L/P i’ve enterde. I tried to let the USB share to “Public” and left the L/P on the Blu-Ray player empty : no go. Tried the latter with “Guest/“blanck”” : no. Tried it with “Guest/guest” : still no go.
Which leads me to a question. I experienced the exact same problems when I tried to share content on from my Mac. After some research it turned out that this was due to the implementation of the MSB protocol into MacOsX.
If I reinstall the “genuine” SMB protocok into my OsX 10.8.2 Mac, it works like a charm…
So I was wondering if anyone knows if WD has implemented the “genuine” developped SMB protocol, of it they have loaded an implementation of their own…
