Unable to browse Netgear ReadyNAS shares with Windows 7

Solution 1:
I found just changed the setting to allow the use of 40 or 56 Bit encryption devices in Windows 7.

  • Make sure that an incorrect password is not cached in windows (check article in wiki).
  • If the account in windows has the same username and password this can help.

Solution 2:
I was not able to access [sharename] on ReadyNAS with Windows 7. I found this thread on the ReadyNAS forum which said:

In the Advanced sharing settings page of Network and sharing center, you need to have it set as Work/Home profile. Try

-Enable network discovery
-Turn on file and print sharing
-Turn off password protected sharing
-Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers

The other settings such as encryption I have set as use 128 bit encryption.

So I changed from 40- or 56-bit encryption to 128-bit. Also "Use user accounts" I changed. After a logoff/logon I am able to see [sharename] after giving the [sharename] password.
