    Maybe I should I ask, exactly how do I access it? Typing just the IP address isn't enough. I type 192.168.1.14 (Zidoo's IP address), it just brings me to the login page of OpenWrt.

    I said use the windows explorer... You know the thing you use to browse your file... In the network you will have openwrt like your NAS....

    I have tried both. Explorer doesn't even find the device. FF at least finds the device even thou it's just OpenWrt.

    I typed \\zidoox10\dev\sda1 (the name I gave it) and I also tried \\zidoo\mmt\sda1 (I think it was mmt or whatever the mounted path was), I also tried just \\zidoox10, but all failed.

    That didn't work, I tried that first.
    Anyway, I never used the 'add network place' routine. I tried this method and it worked. When I accessed my other PC's (Tower & 3 Laptops) all I had to do is type in "\\(PC name)" and it showed in Explorer. But those were all M$ based unlike this.

    When I searched for this problem all the 'hits' I got related to problems accessing the PC from the Media Box, not the other way around. That problem I didn't have which amazed me since I really didn't do anything, other than name the box and check Samba & NAS under Settings in the X10. o_O

    But, thanks for the replies.

    I do not have any problem in windows 10 maybe windows 7 is different. Android do not have hostname by default, it doesn't have netbios like windows so it will not register on your router. To workaround you can add in ./system/ build.prop at the end the line net.hostname=YOURNAME with a blank line under. Of course your device must be root to add the line.

    It's all fine now. It was just I was going about it the wrong way. :(
