map network drive with static ip... work every time
I don't believe you can just set a static mapping to an IP address\root such as \\192.168.50.50
It has to be a mapping to an actual folder such as \\192.168.50.50\photos
Not a mapping, but if you can get the NAS to appear in Windows Explorer you can right-click its icon and create a shortcut. This has worked for me (of course I have NAS name added to HOSTS file so it is tied to fixed IP). Hope that is somewhat clear.

It is - that’s similar to what I did a post or two before I replied to this one, turned on SMB1, got the NAS to appear, then pinned it to Quick Access, disabled SMB1 and happy days.

Hi,

Network discovery in Windows 10 is now working for me. My NAS is showing up under Network / Computers and I can browse the shares.

I installed the lasted DSM update after seeing the 6/26 post by JEROME34. The version I now have is 6.2-23739 Update 2. Afterwards, I went into DSM to Control Panel / File Services / Advanced tab. I enabled WS-Discovery. It started working at that point.

On the NAS in DSM at Control Panel / File Services / SMB tab / Advanced Settings button, I didn't change anything. Miminum SMB protocol is SMB1 & Maximum SMB protocol is SMB2. Local Master Browser is not enabled as well. Also on Windows 10 under Control Panel / Programs and Features / Turn Windows features on or off, I do not have SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support installed.
My network has more than one computer on it, specifically two. One of them still couldn't see the NAS until I enabled the Local Master Browser feature on the NAS in DSM at Control Panel / File Services / SMB tab / Advanced Settings button, and then rebooted the computers and the NAS. Not sure why I needed it for the other computer to see it. Both are running Windows 10 Pro, version 1803, OS build 17134.228

Hi, I've had this issue for a while but have found a solution. I have a DS116. Open the Synology Control Panel and select File Services. Select SMB/AFP/NFS menu. Enable SMB Service. Enter your workgroup name - maybe 'Home' if Windows. Go back to File Services and select Advanced. Go to WS-Discovery and SSDP and enable Windows Network. This worked for me. :D
