    Hi, :)

    I have been having some problems with my ADSL network, and having spoken with tech support, that is now fixed, after stuffing around with my ADSL settings.

    However, (and I'm not sure (but doubt) if the above is relevant) I now find I cannot access my shared folders on my ReadyNAS storage.

    I have previously mapped several folders on the NAS under "My Computer" and they would come up automatically as drives X: Y: and Z:. Now they don't, and when I try to access them I'm presented with a box from "Windows Security" asking me for a password; which I haven't needed before and know nothing about.

    If I try to re-map them I get the same message.

    I never applied a password to any of the shares on my NAS; in fact if you can, I have no idea how, and no reason to.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance,
