NAS not populating "computers" tab in network locations

Unread post by bweslake » Tue May 23, 2017 2:58 am

Hello all,

I cannot get the Diskstation 2411+ running most current DSM to populate the "Computer" tab in the network directory. this ocurs on one Win 7 machine and one Win 10 machine, however on one Win 10 machine it does populate that tab.

the diskstation is reachable by "" in explorer but will not successfully map a network location.

SMB1.0 is enabled on all the windows computers and SMB3.0 and large MTU is enabled on the NAS.

I've spent several days and visited every forum i know to no avail ...

any suggestions?
