Hi guys,


It's been a while since I last posted a question of my own here, but I'm at my wits end. As I may have mentioned, I live in France, and my ISP is Free (no, not free, Free...). I've got what they call a "box" here, i.e. a sort of super-modem that will let you connect to the Internet via xDSL (and soon VDSL2), receive hundreds of TV channels, read BluRay discs, store files (videos, music, photos, what have you) on a integrated NAS, place and receive phone calls, whether via a landline (DECT) or, since recently, through a femtocell.


All in all, the package is impressive and works flawlessly. But...


(Of course, there had to be a "but)


... Yesterday, I let my "box" (it's called a Freebox Revolution, or Freebox V6--for Version 6--by the way) upgrade its firmware, reboot as it always does in such circumstances, and  since that,  the NAS won't mount in the Finder the way it used to under the Shared left pane.


Now, every time I reboot my Mac, I have to open a browser windows and type "smb://" in order mount the NAS in the Finder. I've saved the credentials (login, no password) in the keychain, hoping it would help, but it doesn't. I've got a PC running Windows 8.1 Preview at the moment, and created a shortcut to the NAS on the Desktop. Guess what? I double-click on the shortcut, and sure enough, I can access the content of the NAS from Windows, but not from the Mac.


I must add that I haven't changed anything on the Mac since, or before, upgrading the "box" firmware.


Any ideas?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
