Recently I updated my network with a Netgear ReadyNAS NV+. It is configured to use samba, and member of my workgroup. All the computers in the house can access it without any problems. My Hub however keeps prompting for a username and password.
My hub is a member of my workgroup, it can acces network shares on my win7, vista and xp pc's without problems. It is configured with a static IP and running the latest firmware.
how can I make my Hub work with my NAS?
thanks for your input

Hello...I was having an issue with the invalid username or password ..so maybe this will work..
there is a setting in windows 7 ..
START-->COMPUTER-->HOMEGROUP-->VIEW HOMEGROUP SETTINGS-->CHANGE ADVANCE SHARING SETTINGS..
under the PUBLIC heading there is a PASSWORD PROTECTION SETTING...Turn that to off...
this helped me..so it might helps you too...

It isn't a windows problem, since windows is not involved.
I was able to sort this out thanks to google, so for future reference:
If I entered the name of one of my shares as Username and left the password blank, I was able to connect to that share.

I'm having the same problem - I'll give it a try: I've tried everything else I can think of!
Will this work if I have GoFlex NAS (with internal drive) and an external drive connected? Would I need to change the name of the External Share?
