My 101j has disappeared from the windows network

Postby Svuppe » Sat Jun 23, 2007 3:16 pm

Hi. I have just upgraded from 428 to 462, and now I can't see my diskstation in the network list anymore. If I access it directly by typing "\\diskstation\some_share" it does come up, so Samba is running.

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium. It did work fine with firmware 428. Has something changed in the new firmware, in relation to this?

Sorry guys. False alarm.
It was just Vista, that for some reason was very slow in discovering what was on the network. It has now found the diskstation, as well as my router (which also wasn't found before). I don't know why, as it instantly could see itself and my network printer.
