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: 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!

Move the wireless printer as close as possible to the wireless router, and see if it works better.

I have a belkin vision N1 modem router connected to the Internet by ADSL and I wish to connect to it a SMC Barricade N with a 20Meter cat 6 cable to improve wireless reception on the other side of the...


Can you clarify the problem?

Consdier first that both devices are NAT firewalls and your ISP probably only allows one address. So you would need to put one behind the other. This may not work like you plan. PCs behind the second will not be seen on the LAN by PCs on the first.

The N1 is a very good router. Consider relocting it to a more central location.

Another trick is to locate it near a central wall if it is block. By adding 1 remote antenna and drilling through that wall witha short antenna cable you can get much better coverage on the other side.

It could also be an ethernet problm 1. Power down SMC, plug WAN of SMC to LAN of router and power up SMC. If both devices show link lights and activity the hardware is OK. If not you need a "crossover" cable.

Hope that helps.

How do i change my security settings in my belkin router to WEP and what concequences will this have


You need to access your admin console, go into wireless settings and setup the WEP security. Usually, you will put in a passphrase and the router will generate keys from that. You will use that key to allow computers to connect to your wireless router for internet access. Be sure and change the default access password for your router's admin console, or all of the security in the world won't make a difference.

Personally, I prefer to use MAC filtering. Not the easiest to deal with when guests come over, but it keeps the pests out and I don't have to remember pass keys...

Set password for my belkin54g to stop others getting on our wifi


Is someone getting access to your network or to your router. When setting up any wireless network you should set up encryption and MAC filtering. Use WPA2 if possible as WEP is too easy to crack. Setting MAC filtering will only allow a machine that is registered on your network to have access even if they have the WAP or WAP2 pass-code. Your instruction manual should show you exactly where the password for Admin can be changed but rule of thumb is in Maintenance or Tools sections. Most new routers have built in help, this is a good place to start.

Wireless router


Every single user of the the Internet (Wide Area Network) and every member of an Intranet (Local Area Network) must be assigned an Internet Protocol (ip) address to communicate with other computers. Computer to computer connections are called 'ad hoc' and have cables or short-range wireless, like infrared media. Hubs are like splitters you might use to use one phone jack for two or more telephones. Switches and routers get intelligent control using a MAC address which is a fixed  firmware identity (unless cloned) to route packets of information. Do a Google search on the 'OSI Model' if you wish to learn how all this stuff turns 'ones' and 'zeros' which is all a computer knows into fancy web sites. ~Steve Medley

Laptop cant connect wirelessly


Hey Charlie, If you re-installed your operating system you will need to get the wireless modem driver from your dell disk. For some reason they have not included the drivers in the windows software. If you can't find it then you can go on to the Dell site(obviously on another computer) and enter your service tag and get your drivers that way.

I hope this helps

I need to connect a real router with more ports to it 4-2 pcs


Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.

Note: no need for any CDs to "install" anything.
