On Xp, the following was a 30-second job: on Windows 7 I've spent hours and got nowhere....
My main workgroup is "bp" and that is what my main Windows 7 PC is joined to. I also have a QNAP NAS which is on a workgroup called "nas". On XP, I could see both workgroups easily by browsing the Windows networks, but on Windows 7 it only shows me the workgroup that the Windows 7 PC is part of - not the other workgroup on the network.
So how do I browse all networks on the newsgroup ?
All I want to do is access the NAS drive, which is at \\TS109ii\Multimedia but even I type that into the 'Map Network Drive' box it asks me for user name & password. As far as I know there is none, and I certainly didn't those to access it from XP.
