MS Windows 7 Network:The local device name is already in use

    Question

  • We had an BlackArmour NAS and it worked fine for many months, all in a sudden that all our Windows 7 PC had issue accessing the data. Re-boot the NAS and router and the network connections can't be restored and the "MS Windows Network: The local device name is already in use" error pop-up, we did not belong to a HomeGroup either, but if I go to command prompt to list the files/folders of this connection and it's fine. Other XP and Vista PC had no problem to restore this netowrk connections at all. Would anyone had the same experience and had solution for it?
