Windows 7: can't access nas login page or shared files from win7 via wifi

15 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
can't access nas login page or shared files from win7 via wifi

My problem started when I upgraded from XP to Win7 on one of my computers.
Internet works fine, and I can see my nas (DNS-323) on my network places. I even can open the dns-323 and see the shares.

The problem starts when I open a folder on the nas containing any files, then the explorer hangs, nothing happens. I can browse the nas as long as its only folders showing up. Whenever there are files in it, it hangs and I have to force the window to close.
I also can't access the login page on the nas, it won't show up.

Now the funny part , the problems only appears when I use wlan, when I connect with a wire everythings works!!??

The computer is a LG netbook x120 with a built in realtek 8187se wifi nic and I upgraded to the latest driver 6.9109.
I also tested deactivate the built in wlan and pluged in a USB wlan nic, same problem.
Turned of windows firewall, same problem.
Turned of Avast antivirus, same problem.

Have anyone experienced the same problem or something similar?
I realy could need some help with this!

Sure there must be someone with a similar problem???
I think it can have something with my dsl-router but I'm not sure. It is a Speedtouch ST585 and in that case it should be some difference how it handle wireless and wired data on the internal side. I can't find any difference in the settings.

Any suggestion or input?

Yep read a few issues like this, I don't think there is a solution for it. Everyone just connects HARDWIRE to the network for NAS connections.

Possible update firmware on NAS?? Maybe unknown?

Sorry not much help. Post back here if you find a fix. -WS

@ Henke:
Did you ever find a fix for your problem. I also have a ST585 and experience the exact same problem as you are describing and only from my netbook with Win7 Starter. I am thinking that it could somehow be related to the firmware of the router but have not tried to upgrade it yet.

I don't know if anyone figured this out however here are a few links that might lead you to an answer. Updating the firmware on the ST585 should help. If you figure this out please make sure you come back and post the solution.
