You said you were unable to connect, but haven't exactly mentioned what issue you are facing.

I don't think your AVR will be able to read files from your NAS. You will need a Media Player for that.

It's wd cloud hdd it is a storage where you can store ur data and access anywhere. It works on a wifi network. Earlier had stored my data in to this and was accessing through my tab and mobile purchased it keeping in mind that I will connect it to my HT setup and watch stored movies.
That's the reason had gone for x2100w wifi avr but not able to connect. AVR able to connect on the same network but its not able to connect to wd.

How you are doing it? Connecting your AVR to the switch/router, right? I don't think your AVR have any file browsing capability. You will need a media player AFAIK. I may be wrong though.

I have a DENON x1000 and it has a built in media server for playing music files, so yes AVR can read files from a NAS, (synology in my case). and I am sure x2100 would also have the same capability

I bought my AVR long ago and deliberately don't keep pace with the latest offerings. Just to avoid upgrade bug ;)

Anyway, thanks for correcting me and letting me know the info :)
