Netgear NAS

I have a Netgear NAS device and I cannot set up any shares.  I am using suse 12.1 Linux and have files on a drive in the nas and I can't see them.  I set it up with another machine and everything was working fine.  I replaced that machine with another and now I can't see the files on the nas.  The new machine has the same user name and password as was on the machine that set it up.  The hard drive has two computers using it on the network.  The other machine can see it's files all right but the new one cannot.  I have two directories on the nas /c/backup/a is one and /c/backup/b is another  The machine that is supposed to see /c/backup/b can see it fine as can the new machine but neither machine can see /c/backup/a.  I need the new machine to see /c/backup/a and /c/backup/b and the other machine to see only /c/backup/b.

What is the model number of NAS?

Can your new and old machine connect to the IP of the NAS?

Can you even ping the IP of the NAS?

So then the problem could be in allowed or disallowed connections. Normally all these NAS devices have WebInterface. Do you have one where you can delete or create the shares. Edit permissions and so on?

I assume that you have created CIFS shares.

Do you know the share names?

When you connect to the shares, it should prompt you for login credentials.
