Hi all, I have a QNAP and a Seagate NAS on my home network. Up to now i was able to access them via Windows Explorer (mapped network drives) -so as to transfer purchases and CD rips and do backups- without any issue. Since a couple of days I cannot do that any more.
I can still log on to the NAS and in the case of QNAP use QNAP finder utilities to transfer files but it's certainly a hustle not being able to browse the contents via Win explorer.
To be precise, my QNAP NAS has a fixed ip 192.168.1.101.
- the command "ping 192.168.1.101" works properly (that is, I get a response)
- accessing the web interface works OK (for example I can access the minim server at http://192.168.1.101:9790/ without issues)
- however windows explorer returns the message "the specified network name is no longer accessible".
Anyone else with similar issues and hopefully suggestions on how to overcome this ?
by the way, disabling the firewall has already been tried...
thanks in advance
