Question about Belkin N1 Vision Router

Trying to connect a Mybook 1Tb network drive to N1 Vision

I'm trying to connect a new 1TB WD Mybook network drive to my network via the router ports on an N1 Vision Router, but although I can see all the other PC's (3) and access the internet ok, I can't find the Mybook on the network. I also can't get Mionet to run, which from what I have read might not be such a bad thing.

I have connected the drive driect to my pc's ethernet port and manged to access it that way, but only from my machine and I want it availble when my machine is shutdown, ie via the router hub.

Hi! I have an N1 Vision with similar problems. I have done some research and found that we are not alone with this issue! Two solutions are possible: 1) If yours is version 1 (1000) of the machine, Belkin recommends that it be swapped out for version 2, which apparently has firmware/hardware changes that fix this (unverified; it would seem to me that this would require a whole new DHCP approach) and 2) I've found that if you go through the process of unplugging the device for 2 minutes, replugging it and then refreshing the DHCP table, after between 1 and 5 iterations, the device should appear. I'd also advise you to shut down (for troubleshooting) the software firewall in the router (you'll still have the NAT firewall), that might eliminate a problem/conflict somewhere in your network!

Good luck and let me know if this helps!

WD & Seagate ext HDD not getting connected toBelkins N+ router


hmmm..

Start > Run > devmgmt.msc

Check if there are some errors shown under USB devices..

Also try changing the USB ports...

Use the ports in back of ur CPU.

Also check

Start > run > diskmgmt.msc to see if your device / Hard disk is listed there.

Assign a drive letter to the drive if no letter like e:, f: etc is assigned to it.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


If I understand correctly ... You have not connected the drive to a computer.

If I am not mistaken the WD My Book has preinstalled backup software installed on it. It very well might also have a power down built as part of that programming. Try attaching it to a computer to verify this.

Assuming the backup software needs blank drive to work correctly I would first access the drive select all and delete anything you find (if you know how to unhide hidden files do that before you select and delete all) ... As a 2nd option I would just reformat the drive.

Hope that helps....

i am fairly certain The WD my book external hard drive needs to have the correct software to be able to use and because routers dont have a CD drive i dont think you will be able to do it.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


I have a work around for this.

In the detail of the Belkin manuals it says you can attach up to 4 USB storage devices via a USB HUB.

I had an old Hub so I Connected the HUB to the router and the Maxtor to the HUB --- It worked :-) It came up in a few seconds.

At first I powered the HUB but later took the power out of the hub and it still worked ;-} However when I used a different HUB it would not work without power to the HUB.

The HUB I use is an old Belkin 4 port Tetra Hub. The newer 7 port Belkin HUB (5 Rear 2 Top) only worked with the HUB powered.

Hope this helps untill Belkin Upgrade the Router sofrtare.

This is not as complicated as it may sound. You don't need the manager. Bring up the "run" window (XP - Start - Run / Vista Alt-R). Enter the following address [\\192.168.2.1] press enter. The drive will show up. Right click on it and select Map Network Drive. You can then uninstall the useless program from Belkin.
