DNS 323 not seen in Mac Leopard finder

I have a DNS 323 witha single 500 GB disk. It is attached via a Belkin ADSL/wireless router to a home network. When I start the IMac, I cannot see the network drive in finder however if I open ITunes on the Mac it appears immediately. I can actually select the 323 in ITunes and play music that is stored on the 323 but I still cannot see the 323 in finder.

I have tried turning off the firewall on the Belkin but still does not show up in finder.

Interestingly, about three weeks ago, it would finally show up in finder after five and a half minutes but it has stopped showing up at all now.

Is there some way I can configure the 323 so that I can see it in finder and select it to download music files to it?

Thanks,

Tony Hodge

Describe to me exactly how you are set-up. Include the IP addresses of each device and exactly what ports are being used on each device. Could like an IP mistake or in some cases an X-over cable is still required IF your switch does not have does not have a x-o button on it. But that depends how things are connected. These are the 2 most likely but need the above info to diagnose.

SOURCE: Unable to see Shared Storage Drive II on EasyManage via Wireless

Just got a Maxtor Share II drive and absolutely love it. Setting it up was a pain especially when the drive didn't remember the Administrators password.
Here's what I think the problem may be

1-Your router is not assigning an IP address to the drive
2-Make sure your router is configured to DHCP IP configuration not Static.
3-Before trying to use the drive make sure to install the Software/Drivers first.
Other suggestions

This may or may not apply to you. I got my Maxtor drive on 4-07-08 and from previous experiences with other computer products, ie, windows software, printer drivers, etc. The manufacturer in order to rush things out the cd software that comes with the product is not the final version and most likely the software already has an update on the manufacturer’s web site so it’s always good to check before committing to what you get on the CD. So sure enough the BIOS for my Maxtor Share II 500Gig hard drive was already old. I downloaded the new version upgraded the BIOS and my drive is working great. I hope this suggestions help. Enjoy your drive. Alfredo.

SOURCE: how do i build a local area network in windows xp?

On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at smichael@phoenixschool.net and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

1. This error is related to the dialup modem
you will need to disable the dialup modem.
When setting up your router for the lan in the browser you will need to select "internet connect that is always on"
DNS should be on "automatically assign.
yes you can connect a switch to the router and the router will assign each port an IP address automatically.
If you are using the router wirelessly you will need to assign each device that is wireless via the MAC (Media Access Contro) number.
Check you router manual for details on how to set each device in the router by MAC address.
Basic instruction for multiple units set up in the router
Basic setup for multiple computer to go online:
1. power router off

Connecting internet to wireless router


If you are trying to connect your wireless router to your ADSL modem then ( ADSL Modem -->Wireless Router-->Your Computer) dont enter any values in the ISP, DNS and MAC address fields. Let them be on default as :
Domain Name Server (DNS) Address Get Automatically From ISP

Router MAC Address Use Default Address This would then automatically pick up the settings from your modem.

You should remember to ad a WEP key to secure your wireless.

Sounds like it could be a Gateway or DNS issue, is there anywhere you can enter the gateway and DNS addresses in the Belkin Other thing to check is the ADSL modem and the Belkin are not on the same subnet ie. the ADSL modem should not be 192.168.2.X. This is because the Belkin is a router and won't route to addresses in the same subnet

I'm having issues with the belkin F5D7234-4 and intermittent connectivity with the network, i'm running a compaq c502tu and the belkin G/G+ router, which the router is hooked up to a general custom built...


Of the Belkin Modem Routers I have used and supported, around 60-70% had connectivity issues.

If the Belkin was cabled there appeared to be less issues than if it was used in a Wireless and cabled capacity.

I suggested to another person only moments ago to quickly sketch a diagram to show, how the network is set up. Add labels to the piccy's which provide the following info:

1. Computer Types (Makes, Models) and OS (Vista, Windows7, Leopard etc...)
2. Connection Types (Wireless / Cabeled).
3. The IP Nos.
4. Modem Types (Make, Model). ie, Belkin F5D7234-4 Router.
5. ADSL or ADSL2.

If it is possible to upload the diagram to FixYa then I suggest you scan the diagram (sketch) or take a photo of it and put it on the computer so it can be uploaded to FixYa.

I only discovered FixYa yesterday and joined, so I am not sure what is possible yet, as I have been focussed on trying to find solutions or provide suggestions on where to find the solution.

I would be proactive and submit your problem directly to Belkin via their website, I have provided the Australian Belkin website link below:

I hope this is helpful to you, please rate it. Regards,

Airport settings in Mac leopard


Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.

Networking


You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
