Cannot map Synology in windows 10 - Device visible on network and in broswer

Postby simpleme » Sun Sep 03, 2017 4:39 pm

Hi,

I updated my PC to windows 10, and since then I am unable to access my Synology in windows explorer. When I 'map network drive' the message I get is "'The specified network name is no longer available".

However, when I go to network I can see my synology. Same when I type in local IP address of the device in internet explorer.

My synology is DS212j
firmware is Synology DSM 4.3

Any help would be greatly appreciated
