I used the Reset this PC function to rebuild a sluggish 8-year-old Win10/64 PC.

 

When I try to map a network drive (to \\R7000\Music) I get the following error message:

 

You can't access this shared folder because your

organization's security policies block unauthenticated guest

access. These policies help protect your PC from unsafe or

malicious devices on the network.

 

The device in question is an external hard drive with a USB connection to my Netgear R7000 router. That device appears as a Network device in Windows Explorer.

 

Help would be appreciated.

BTW, the media server is available on two other PCs and several other devices (Roku, FireTV...).

won't accept any of several passwords I've tried, including, of course, my regular R7000 password and my Windows login password.

Frustrating!

Problem solved by adding a username/password to the router.

That nobody on this site responded was actually helpful (in that it wasn't a Win 10 issue).
