Windows 7: Connecting to a password protected share on my ReadyNas server NV+

Connecting to a password protected share on my ReadyNas server NV+

Hey there good people...
I recently upgraded from windows XP to 7. The problem is I can no longer connect to my shares on the server. Windows prompts me for a username and password and once I input this info, the same prompt shows up again.

I have realised the domain it uses in the prompt (for username and password) is the same as the machine name and I have no field to input the domain manually.

Could this be my achilles' heel and how do I go about it.
Thanks in advance.

In the Control Panel / User Accounts/ Manage Your Credentials section, do you have your user name and password stored for the ReadyNAS?

Hi,
I have had the same problem and have wasted a lot of time searching the Netgear forum, trial and error testing and communicating with the Netgear support function to solve it. Your comment is the most succinct and helpful suggestion I have come across and it works. Well done and thank you. Paul
