  1. Go to Start -> Run -> "secpol.msc".
  2. Then go to Local Policies -> Security Options.
  3. Find "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level".
  4. Change the setting from "Send NTLMv2 response only" to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated".


**Vista defaults to only send the more secure NTLMv2 protocol, which these NAS devices / Samba do not support.
