Are you using specific credentials to access the NAS device?  Does each user use different creds?  If so, verify that the account is question isn't locked out due to a security setting, password timeout, etc...

OK,
Heres the scoop--

After 3 days of searching around everywhere, including Netgears forum, :

You can not have a share name that is the same as any windows user name.
If so, no connection to the share is possible. After renaming the share from "Mike" to "MikeNAS"-- everything is OK

Netgear tech support couldn't even tell me that (not the New Deli , India TS, the Santa Clara, Ca location)
