    Just means that the Tables are screwed up and need flushed. Unplug the router and make sure that it flushes the tables, along with reset the Winsock on the machines.
    Ha! That did it. Maybe because the reinstall of Widows changed the "Computer Name" associated with the PC? For whatever reason, it worked.

    Names are great when a device may have a DHCP vs. Static IP. If the device has a static IP. Use that, vs the name.
    I could give the NAS drive a static address, but I'd rather refer to it by name. Windows gives an irritating warning popup (saying things from the internet can't be trusted) when executing a program from a NAS drive accessed by IP addr rather than name. Since save all installation files for installed software on my NAS so I get that warning a lot when the drive is accessed by addr.

    Internet Explorer and edge will do that, along with a Firewall.

    I have those devices that need to be set as a static, like my printer, NAS, Access Points, because I use the IP's in the shortcuts for them.
