One of the settings you probably have to change is to allow Win7 to use the (obsolete) NTLMv1 authentication mechanism, which is the only variant that most versions of samba (your NAS) understand. This post explains how to do it:

Ok, Wow wierd, I disabled HomeGroup, but it seems to make no difference. It seems to let me connect when I first boot into Win7, or if I reboot the NAs drive. But the second time I try to get in I get the error screen that I attached to the prev. message. I can see all my shared Winxp drives and folders and my Dlink camera, and my tversity servers, but this NAS is still a problem???

Take a look at the thread that H2SO4 linked. I hadn't even thought about the Samba connection!

Like I had said all my networking with my Xp machines is working fine, it's just the NAS drive that is giving me problems in Win7.

Yeah, I know. You already said that disabling Homegroup didn't help. Did you read the link H2SO4 posted???

I am having a similar problem. Except I only have one machine. My laptop running Windows 7. I have a D-Link DNS-321. I successfully mapped my drives when I installed W7 and it worked all weekend and then yesterday I had leave and connected to a different network (at school). Now I can no longer map my drives. I receive this message.

"Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. to try to identify and resolve network problems, click diagnose."

I have attempted to diagnose - no such luck. My gut tells me it is a name resolution issue. I can ping the IP address of the DNS-321, but cannot ping the name.

You can use regedit.exe to "manually" edit the LMCompatibilityLevel registry key. That's all the policy editor does in this instance anyway. More detail:
