Can ping NAS and see share in IE, but can't connect in explorer/ma

I have a NAS (lacie ethernet jobbie) which I can connect to, set up users,
shares etc.

I can also ping using IP or computer name.

I can also see share in web browser using
http://ethernet_bd/cgi-bin/browse?share=share

(but interestingly not with //ethernet_bd/share)

What I can't do:
- map a network drive to the share
- see the computer in the network neighbourhood /my network places
workgroup called "workgroup"

any clues as to why?

thanks

What anti-virus software ae you using? I know that Norton A/V has a
module (Internet Worm) which blocks all 'NetBIOS" name resolution,

I'm confused as to why it would block anything outbound.

I use AVG and ZoneAlarm.

Surely if I can ping the NAS by name then it *is* resolving it.

Switched off zone alarm. All working!

Can't believe that
- this is not mentioned in the Lacie Big Ethernet documentation
- is not suggested in the (ever useless) microsoft help/ support
troubleshooter

Zone Alarm is not provided by Lacie or Microosft. You can try to
restart Zone Alarm and add the NAS's IP address into the "Trusted"
zone. At the same time, you should add the entire address range that
your "home" network uses.
