Network Switch requires password
I have a D-Link DES1108 switch which is connected to a router which is connected to a cable modem.
I have 2 computers and a NAS also connected to the router.
I have 2 more computers connected to the switch.
All computers can access the inet normally.
Each of the computers on the router can see and talk to the NAS.
The computers on the switch can see the NAS but when I try to connect to it, it is asking for a password.
The computers are a mix - 1=XP, 1=Vista, 2=W7. They are all configured as workgroup, no domain.
If I move a computer from the router to the switch it will also request a password to access the NAS.
If the NAS is on the switch then all will require a password. I have no clue why it is asking for a pw, or what pw it would like.
A switch is not configurable, correct? It is just suppose to connect everything. The computers on the switch get the IP from the router as do the ones on the router.
So what am I missing????????
