Recently I updated my network with a Netgear ReadyNAS NV+. It is configured to use samba, and member of my workgroup. All the computers in the house can access it without any problems. My Hub however keeps prompting for a username and password.
My hub is a member of my workgroup, it can acces network shares on my win7, vista and xp pc’s without problems. It is configured with a static IP and running the latest firmware.
how can I make my Hub work with my NAS?
thanks for your input
Hello…I was having an issue with the invalid username or password …so maybe this will work…
there is a setting in windows 7 …
START–>COMPUTER–>HOMEGROUP–>VIEW HOMEGROUP SETTINGS–>CHANGE ADVANCE SHARING SETTINGS…
under the PUBLIC heading there is a PASSWORD PROTECTION SETTING…Turn that to off…
this helped me…so it might helps you too…
It isn’t a windows problem, since windows is not involved.
I was able to sort this out thanks to google, so for future reference:
If I entered the name of one of my shares as Username and left the password blank, I was able to connect to that share.
I’m having the same problem - I’ll give it a try: I’ve tried everything else I can think of!
Will this work if I have GoFlex NAS (with internal drive) and an external drive connected? Would I need to change the name of the External Share?
