Windows 7: Network locations wont come online at boot

Network locations wont come online at boot

Hi there !

SSD just died on me so I had to replace it and reinstall Windows.

I have a QNAP 469 Pro server in RAID5 (4 x 2Tb) on my network that usually works great. Aslo I have an external USB3 WD 3Tb attached to the QNAP.

Now, since I reinstalled Windows, After I boot up , all my network drives don't come online for some reason. I can see them but they are offline. But if I click on them to get in , they come online just fine.

Any ideas on how to get them to go online automatically at boot ??

Thanks !

System specs:

Windows 7 Ultimatex64
Asus RT-N66U router
Intel I7 4770
Asus Maximus VI Mobo
16Gb Trident-X 2400 ddr3

Where is that option, can't find it. Or are you talking about the wireless ??

This is on a wired network.

I disabled Windows Firewall and the problem just went away... Si I guess it has to do something with it.
