Hi everyone

 

I am trying to connect my desktop to the NAS Network that I have connected.

 

Initially I had trouble trying to connect my desktop to WiFi using the USB Wi-Fi adapter. I then shared internet connection using my laptop using Ethernet cable to the desktop. I am now trying to connect to my NAS using the desktop. I can access it on laptop via wireless but not on desktop.

 

Can anyone advise please.

Can you give a bit more detail of how everything is connected currently. I assume the NAS is on the same network as the desktop and laptop and is connected with an ethernet cable to your router or to a network switch. Are you just trying to browse to it with SMB or are you trying to use something else like FTP to access the NAS?

Sure. I have the NAS connected to the Router. My laptop is connected to that via wi-fi. I have an ethernet cable connected from my laptop to the desktop which only has internet connection via USB Network adaptor which gives rubbish connection hence connecting to the laptop.

 

I can see the NAS on my laptop, but not the desktop. I hope that makes sense.

 

Thanks in advance

I think that the issue is that you're desktop is on a separate network that is being created when you setup the internet connection sharing. If you were to plug the desktop (while I realize this may not be feasible) into the router via ethernet you would be able to see the NAS. Have you tried browsing to the NAS directly via it's IP address from the desktop instead of looking for it under the near-by devices / network browser?
