W10 Build 10061 Cannot connect to network share


Recommended Posts

neo1911

I installed Windows 10 build 10061 today. On booting, the first thing I did was connect to the network share (QNAP NAS). It connected fine and I installed MS Office 2013 off it.

 

But on reboot, it does not connect to it anymore. I can access the same NAS from another W 8.1 based laptop. I can also ping it from command prompt from within Windows 10.

 

Any ideas?

Found out what is causing it.

 

Did a fresh install again and connected to my network share.

 

Now I wanted to use 4 digit pin to log-in to Windows. So to create it, Windows asked me to verify my Microsoft account using 2-step verification and code was sent on my registered mobile number. Once it was done and 4 digit pin was set up, I restarted the PC. 

 

...and bang!! my network drive stopped connecting. What kind of weird bug is this? Completely a deal breaker. This has been going on since first public preview from Jan.

I found a way to map a Nas drive.  Go to File Explorer,  Right click on Network shortcut.  Map network drive and enter the IP of you NAS drive using exp  \\192.168.1.2 is mine and hit browse.  You should be able to browse some of your folders there and then map them.  Or, after you hit browse, add the 192.168.1.2 to either quick links or quick access. 

 

I hope that helps.  It's a bit different but it works.

IP addresses are different? Wow, and this whole time, when explorer wouldn't see my shares, and I typed the direct IP it was magic? Who knew.... /s

Wrong. It did not work even after typing direct IP. 

 

Worked once I disabled 4 digit pin while signing.

Open Control Panel (Not sure these are in the PC Settings app yet).

 

Click "Credential Manager"

Click "Windows Credentials"

Click "Add a Windows credential"

Type in the credentials you use with the QNAP device.

 

Assuming you have password protected shares.

I'm trying to upload some pictures on how I got it to work for me.  I have a Buffalos Linkstation 2TB  and the step I used worked.  My plex us back and I can use it for my backup as well.

Tried that but it just doesn't connect to the share if I verify my account using mobile number. If it is a local account, the mapped network share starts working again.

 

Same problem in build 10122.

 

I can ping the server fine. But as soon as I try to mount it by typing it's name or IP address in explorer, Windows cannot find it. This problem started right from 1st publicly available Windows 10 beta.

 

These days, over complicating things is the new IN-thing. Once the settings are over complicated, you hide them. Problem solved. (Y)

This problem continues to exist in leaked build 10147.

1. Map a network drive in This PC as Z:

2. Working flawlessly so far. I can browse all my files.

3. Go to settings and under Login, create 4 digit PIN to be used to login, instead of a regular password.

4. Reboot the PC.

5. BAM!! Network drive is now not accessible.

6. I can ping it through Command prompt but it just doesn't map no matter what.

7. I try to map it by typing IP address but still fail

8. Then again go to settings, and under Login, reset PIN. Then instead of entering new PIN, close the window to disable PIN completely and switch to login by Microsoft account password.

9. Reboot the PC.

10. Now the network drive can be mapped and works as before.

I just can't believe a bug like this is seeping through all the builds released so far.

I tried all the solutions but when PIN is enabled, the network drives just fail to mount no matter what.

Anyone here can shed some light on this?

 

I am not able to enjoy any W10 insider builds since this issue is present right from the first beta.

Can't shed any light on it, but I can confirm it happens to me as well on 10130.  Pretty annoying bug.

Side note question:  In build 10130, I don't have an option to Reset PIN under my Settings > Accounts > Sign In Options.  There's a button for Forgot My PIN, and Change, but no Reset.  And typing in no PIN on the Change page doesn't work. So, is there a way to revert from using a PIN in 10130?

Thank god I found this thread.  The PIN problem was keeping me out of my network drives as well!  10130 and the new 10162 builds were the same.  

 

The only way I found to ditch the PIN is to go into Settings > Accounts, click sign in with a local account instead, create the local account, then do the same thing again - but choose sign in with Microsoft account.  When you're going through the setup for that, and it gets to the PIN option, choose no thanks.  You lose the convenience of the PIN, but signing in with your password on a Microsoft account allows you to connect to your network drives again!

I found another easier way to disable the PIN. Go into Settings > Accounts > Sign In Options. Clic on button for Forgot My PIN, Clic on Continue, you may be prompted to enter the password for your account, type it, and when ask for the new PIN, you clic on Cancel and then the PIN will be disable.

 

You must log off (no need restart) and signing again with your password on a Microsoft or local account allows you to connect to your network drives again!

Thank god I found this forum. Spend all day re-installing / repairing the Windows 10 trying to figure out what was causing this issue.

After a repair I could acces my network shares on my NAS, but thanks to this forum I now know the PIN was causing this issue for me.
W10 was released a few days ago in my country. Very bad from Microsoft.
 
Gonna report this bug on the official MS website.

Has there been any solution to this issue? I have it on a new ASUS Zenbook (10 Home) and my custom built desktop (10 Pro), but not my Surface Pro 3 (10 Pro). It's not a huge deal, but I can't come up with any rational explnation as to why the pin vs password would limit what you can see on the network.

      Sky Mobile allows customers to share spare data with others
      by Paul Hill



      Sky has announced that its mobile customers can now share their spare data with others who may need it. Sky Mobile customers only need to add a free Sky Mobile SIM to their account which they can then share with friends or family. The gift SIM can be topped up using spare Piggybank data.

      With more people staying home and using their Wi-Fi connections, they’re building up more of their data than usual and accumulating an average 69GB in their Piggybank. To help customers use this data, Sky Mobile is letting them share it. The new gift SIMs will be free for 12 months but afterwards, the company will begin charging £5 per month to use them or customers can cancel.

      Commenting on the offer, which is only available until February 25, Managing Director of Sky Mobile Paul Sweeney said:

      To take advantage of the offer, head to sky.com/sharemysparedata and add a free SIM to your basket. When it arrives, follow the instructions on the packet to activate it. Afterward, you can use the My Sky App to add data from your Sky Piggybank to the new SIM which friends and family can take advantage of.

      Having just moved house, I noticed the wifi in my study was patchy. I therefore invested in a TP Link Powerline (TL-WPA4220) to run from my router to my study.
       
      It works perfectly on all my personal devices (Windows, Apple, Android etc) with them all getting the full wifi speeds promised by my ISP (Vodafone), both over wifi and ethernet. 
       
      The main reason I installed this, however, was for a fast reliable connection to my work computer. But whether via wifi or ethernet I'm getting much slower speeds on my work laptop than my personal devices connected to the same powerline - even slower than before I installed it when I was working at the far edge of my router's range. I'll be getting 70mbps download and 25mbps upload speeds on my personal devices and 2mbps download and 5mbps upload on my work computer.
       
      I called my work IT, they suggested my ISP was throttling my use (when testing the connection on my work laptop we found that when I connected to my ISPs network / server the speed was as expected, but any other server was very slugglish, which led them to think this).
       
      I contacted by ISP who insist they're not throttling my use and it must be something to do with my employer's IT policy. They did give me a static IP address suggesting this might help (but it hasn't).
       
      Any ideas why this might be happening?My main suspicoion is that it's something to do with the VPN on my work laptop (zscaler), although when I tried installing a VPN on my own persional laptop it had no effect on speeds. How could my laptop / VPN even recognise that my internet is coming from a different source? Are there any known issues with powerlines accessing secure VPN networks?
       
      I'm being bounced around to different people none of whom have a clue, so any advice would be gratefully received!
    • By sikhwarrior
      Hi all, as the title suggests I am getting awful internet speeds while using my powerline adapters. I have been quoted upto 500Mbps and when I do a speedtest from the router, I get around 450Mbps ish.  When I use my computer which is upstairs over the powerline, I hit roughly 20-40Mbps. Wireless I get a bit better around 200ish depending on the device. The reason why I want to use wired, is because there are too many devices on wifi and I would like to use a lot more bandwidth while streaming or gaming. 
       
      My question is, what could be the cause of this? I have tried different plugs and cables but no change.  Any suggestions on what else I could try? The powerline adapters that I am using are TP-link  model number:TP-PA511

      Android 11 Beta 2 cleans up the share menu by merging app share intents
      by Rajesh Pandey



      Google released the second beta of Android 11 for all compatible Pixel devices with a bunch of bug fixes and stability improvements. Among the plethora of changes, the company has also tweaked the share menu to give it a cleaner look. The move comes after Google greatly improved the speed of the share menu with the Android 10 update last year.

      The company has done this by merging multiple share intents from the same app into one. So, for example, while Twitter used to show multiple share intents in the share menu -- Tweet, Direct, and Fleet -- the share menu in Android 11 beta 2 only has one Twitter share intent. To access the other intents, users will first have to tap on the Twitter button in the share menu and then select the desired intent. This is also denoted by the small drop-down arrow in the share intent of an app.

      Share menu in Android 10 (left) vs Android 11 (right) This does mean that there's now an additional step for sharing content in apps with multiple share intents. However, Google is allowing users to pin specific share targets as a workaround to this problem. This can be done by long-pressing on a share intent and selecting the 'Pin' option. Pinned share options are now shown at the top of the share menu with a pin icon to highlight that they have been pinned.

      Given how cluttered the share menu in Android devices tends to become due to multiple share intents from the same app, this move from Google is definitely a welcome one.

      Hey everyone, 
       
      I haven't touched my network setup in a long time as it's been working with no issues for months. 
       
      Over the last week or so, I've noticed that some devices struggle to stay connected to the network. At the moment, there's a Kindle and a desktop that are struggling to stay connected. 
       
      I've no idea where to start looking into this so any pointers would be great!
       
      I have a USG, two Unifi APs (Lite) and a D-Link switch (DGS-1100-08P).
