Windows 7 does not have that option (I thought it did but checking about 6 machines here none have it - it has to be done in the registry).

Hmm, wondering if they removed it. I clearly remember seeing it on mine. I'll check mine this evening.

I thought so too. Maybe the latest Windows update removed it.

And of course I believe I'm incorrect. I was thinking about Windows 10. I must apologize for incorrect information.  :-\

Thanks for all the thoughtful inputs.
I thought I might have had it fixed, I changed the workgroup name to something else, rebooted, and I could access the NAS!  But I couldn't leave well-enough alone, and changed the workgroup again to what it should be, and lost the nas again.  Tried rechanging the workgroup again back and forth, but no luck.  The nas still shows up under "network', just can't get to it.
I am pretty sure it is something with network permissions, or something.
Now that I think back, when I put in my new router a few days ago, win7 found a "new network" and asked to join it.  I chose 'home-type network'.  Weird because my other win7 wired pc did not ask that....
It is some weird network glitch on this unit...

Ya, been thinkin that too. Good Luck on finding it. Might just have to do a re-install of 7 and go from scratch or do the repair install.

Wondering if I should try to reset the network.  I am out of my league but found these commands .... maybe try next.....
from an elevated command prompt.  But I'm not ready to kill the rest of my network, like internet access, etc.....??

    netsh int ip reset reset.txt

    netsh winsock reset

    netsh advfirewall reset

Wouldn't hurt to try. Maybe try installing the network adapter card drivers, then re-installing them.

I don't know if this is relevant but there is an article in the Register (Jan 9th) about some problems with the latest win 7 update. 'Just updated windows 7? Can't access network shares? It isn't just you'.

I was thinking it could be an update, but my other wired win7 unit connects just fine, and it is up to date just like the other one with only 3 outstanding updates from 1/8/19 which I have not done yet.  Do you have a link to that post or article?
I am heading to a cold re-install of everything.....what a pain.
Thanks.
