Question about D-Link Computers & Internet
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?

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.

1- set up router trough desktop
2-run program for wireless, after it gives you the IP ( which it already has, set user name and password for protection)
3-set up the laptop as a "Shared folder" along with the printer if there is one.

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 email@example.com and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

you can get a HP x175 printserver. (not expensive.) and connected it between the printer and the router. that way you don't have to have the desktop on all the time.
