I've had problems accessing my NAS221 with Win 7 for some time.
My small Network has 1 Win 7 PC one XP PC, wifi Router, 6 port Switch and a Laser jet printer networked through the NAS USB
Win 7 PC , XP PC ,The router and the Switch are gigabit Devices
Just using windows explorer through Xp the access to everything NAS is almost instantaneous and seems perfectly ok.
But do the same through win 7, everything just seems to stop .. explorer windows just freeze for many seconds , or report "Not responding".
System will hang for a while then windows gives a Loud Beep and all the windows clicked on will suddenly all open .
then it will freeze again. eventually access will then work for a while .
This happens even with a brand new win 7 install .
What really miffs me is our win 7 laptop access to the NAS is perfect running through the Routers Wifi !
has anyone got any clue where to look , its would seem to be a win 7 LAN issue ?? but why if XP and the Laptop run so well ??
Have used Win 7 Standard Lan Drivers and also the one from the makers site .. but no change still useless.
Typing all this on the Win 7 PC so the LAN must be ok ..
any help greatly appreciated
Also .. I use a LAN DVD/movie player through a LAN powerline plug setup and that works well too .
