Re: Cannot access network NAS hard drive
The primary thing I would recommend in this case is to renew the wireless adapter drivers and momentarily immobilize any antivirus software running on your PC. For a PC to get linked to a wireless network you will require ensure for few things. Make sure that your wireless adaptor is installed properly.
- Unlock Device Manager. To perform this in Windows 7, click on Start, enter device in the Start Search box, and after that click Device Manager in the Programs list. If you are aggravated for an administrator password or for verification, enter the password, or click Continue.
- To unlock Device Manager in Microsoft Windows XP, click Start, click Run, enter devmgmt.msc, and after that click OK.
- Enlarge Network Adapters, and after that confirm that your wireless adaptor is exhibited. If your wireless adaptor is not presented, one or more of the below problems possibly causing the trouble:
- A wireless network adaptor may not be actually there. You have to install a wireless network adaptor earlier than you can bond to a wireless network.
- Your wireless adaptor may not be joined properly. Turn off your PC and after that eliminate and again connect your adaptor.
- If your adaptor is a USB adaptor, there possibly a trouble with the USB ports on your PC. Check your USB ports by linking to a dissimilar USB device for example a USB mouse. Confirm that the USB ports work properly. If you have numerous USB devices on your PC, disconnect any devices which you do not require.
- Confirm that your wireless network adaptor emerges with a yellow exclamation sign or a red "X"
- A yellow exclamation sign points to that there is a trouble with the device.
- A red "X" points to that the device is immobilized. Right-click the device and after that click Enable.
- Twice click your wireless network adaptor. On the General tab, make sure that the device is working accurately.
