Network/file sharing has to be enabled on Vista.
Also not really clearhow you attched to the NAS? by soft come with it?- if so than it have to be "Vista ready".
Or by "maping drives" ? - than WINS might need to be present, or else?

Thanks

NAS is attached to Netgear 10/100/1000 switch. All attached devices are 1G capable.
Acer Easystore has web based interface proprietary software - very basic to create users, shares etc.
Mapping is done on any PC/Mac. Drives are always accessible after rebooting the NAS but become unavailable part way through data transfer. Once file at a time is OK but bulk data transfer of any size causes the mapped drives to become unavailable. As you say is is probably a Vista problem but it does also happen with OS X 10.4. Transfer speed for the short while the transfer takes place is usually only 1.01mb

You probably need config WINS, on any windows servers , and IP of it for every NIC, on network- properties-IP4- advance- put IP for WINS, and check mark "enable NetBios over ".
make sure there is no firewall blockage for NetBIos.
Beside that, permission needs to be set , to alow sharing, but this is prrobably done already.
Test actual speed PC-to-PC, across diffrent portion/diffrent OS and so on
Iperf 2.0.2 installer for Windows from    http://dast.nlanr.net/Projects/Iperf/   Look for kperf_setup.exe

This will help narrow down problem, find "bottleneck",cable problem, diffrents in file transfer type, and so on.

Finally I have an answer. I have been monitoring the hard disks and finally today one disk of a raid volume is marked as having failed. It is very annoying for all concerned that it should be a hardware failure despite the fact that the infrequent (now constant) red led was supposed to be an indication of software failure. Now I need to return or have the disk replaced - personally I would like to never see it again
