And just to be sure check the auto ip block list too.
The only groups on here are the default ones, Administrator and User. Both have been given read/write access to all folders. And all users are members of both groups.
It doesn't seem to be a problem accessing specific folders. I can't access the drive itself. I can't map the drive using any of the three "methods" that are described. All three end of giving me "access denied" errors.
Firewalls have been disabled, with no benefit. I re-figured my network to get rid of homegroups, thinking that may be the cause, but nope. I used the recommendations to confirm my usernames are correct in windows, and they are.
There are no entries in the DSM firewall or auto IP block list.
Today I ordered a switch, so I could take the router out of the mix and see if that helps. At this point I don't care about internet access. I just want Intranet access. I'll let people know when I get the switch in a couple of days.
Is there any way this could be a defective unit? I know it doesn't sound like it, but I've disabled software firewalls, and my network settings are pretty standard/default kind of settings. I just bought it from Amazon, so I could return it for a replacement pretty easily, if I don't wait too long. But I don't want to get a replacement, only to have the same problem.
Is there any way this could be a bad installation of DSM? Is there a way to re-install this on the diskstation?
