Good Morning,

I have purchased a new laptop, and a new Buffalo Linkstation LS210D (LS210DE18) Version 1.74-0.02.

I've plugged the NAS into the network and it finds it no problem, I've installed the software that came with it, and it does instantly detect the storage drive. I can then browse and it takes me right to the folder, and I can also map a drive to it, which also works.

I go into settings of the device which loads the web interface, the first page is basically change the admin password.

I do this, but as soon as I do that, I can no longer access the shared folder, or mapped drive.

I played around a bit, nothing works, I can reset to factory and again it all works fine, the second I change the admin password it doesn't work.

If I change the password back to the default admin password, it works again, so this is definitely the issue.

I tried doing the settings first, changing the admin password and then browsing the share or mapping the drive, but it won't work.

I will add, I can access it via \\IP though and see the shares.

Any ideas please, I'm completely stuck.

With my laptop, it is windows 10 pro, and I sign in via fingerprint - not sure if this helps, but thought I would add it.

Thank you.
