Hi no can get either ubuntu 12.04 machines to recognised the nas ip address .i know in what the i p address is from previous version of ubuntus which was install on the same machines .tryed typing it the address bar tells me page unaviable.the early version of ubuntu was 10.04 lts which found the nas with no problems either by typing in address or clicking on browse networks .have spoke to zxyel they its operating system configeration is needed the 7 machine picks up with no drivers installed can be set up through samba maybe if so how never used it or set it up .as use the the basic file sharing with no problems

Then ping the IP. Does it ping?

what Win7 does is of zero value, it is a completely different OS with different support and installed software.

Can you help with this problem?
