Can't refresh excel with a connection to access db on shared network

Hi, I have an excel workbook 2013. When i tried to refresh the excel, it always prompt " do you want to connect to...?" Then asking for password. I didn't set password and i already give permission to everyone to access.
1. Why I can't refresh connection to access on shared network?
2. But why on other PC, it's working?
Can anyone explain to me? How to solve the problem? Thanks in advance.

If its a mapped drive it shows up as a drive letter in my pc so then you would just connect to drive x IT: How to Map a Drive: Windows 7

Its likely the problem is the url isnt being resolved try mapping then try by drive letter
