Trying to get network access to Linksys NAS200 ( Mapping )

I recently installed a NAS 200 and am trying to get it set up so I can put shared folders ( Pictures / videos ) on it so the family can access it from any computer in the house.
I have spent over 5 hours on the phone with Linksys and have not gotten to work 100%
This is where I am at now.
I can see the two NAS drives from ONE computer and can open files ( VERY SLOW ) but I can not move any files from the computer. I can not view the drives from any other computers.

I am very frustrated and desperatly need some assistance becuase all I get from Linksys is somebody from Overseas that does not speak english the best. I realize this will take some time and would like to work with someone on this latter today ( Sat Nov 22 )
If anybody would like to assist latter today please let me know.
Thank You !!

Greetings Larry my name is Mark and i will be glad to assist you. First larry lets go through the steps. If they gave you a disk with your router and it contained a networking software, identify the software and uninstall it. Here we go to start the setup you will do each of these steps. Go to your control panel and depending on your operating system go to networking when that window appears there will be a sentance usually in the upper left corner that says"set up a small home or office network" click on that. you will go through the setup process but there are key things to make sure are the same in each computer when you come to the section that says computer name give each computer a specific name like (Larrys office) etc. the next key thing is the workgroup name I recommend "larryhouse" that is one word. the next key step is when it comes to the section that says turn on file and printer sharing do so. it will ask you if you are sure say yes then keep going it will get to a point when you see little computers going from left to right for a minute and then keep going it will prompt you to restart do so. now proceed to each computer and do the same. If you have any questions You can contact me again either by phone or e-mail.
Take care,
Be mucho blessed,

Invisible network hard disk

well, if you can Ping it, then the firewall is not likely going to be blocking it. Regardless, which product do you have ? The Silver Stone 2-drive NAS ? If yes, you should be using the FNS Assistant (FNSA)
The Freecom Network Storage Assistant helps you to locate your Freecom SilverStore 2-Drive NAS in your network. It can also be used to:
- quickly open the SilverStore 2-Drive NAS configuration website.
- configure the basic settings.
- mount shared network folders.
a) Start the FNS Assistant and select the device from the device list.
b) Go to "Web interface of your Freecom Network Storage device" for initial configuration

hope that helps.

Are you trying to secure the wireless network?
For this you will need to access the router setup page and change the settings manually.
See how to secure wireless network.

If you are not able to save the settings then I will suggest you to upgrade the firmware of your router. The reset the Linksys router and reconfigure it manually.
Create a new wireless network. Change the name of the wireless network that you never used before.
Then try to connect to the new wireless network.

The IP address is normally used by Linksys broadband routers. Type in your browser and it should connect you. Here is a link for the default usernames/password assuming that you haven't changed the defaults:

Can't acess laptop computer but can see on desktop

To allow access between both the laptop and desktop the hard drives or folders on both computers must be made shareable.
Right click on the C drive or folders or other hard drive then click on Sharing and Security - Sharing. Then in Network Sharing and security - tick Share this folder on the network and enter a share name that identifies this computer and drive/folder.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop

Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).

File sharing


File Sharing could be easily done between your laptop & desktop assuming both are running some Windows version with no other program needed to install. You have to right click on the filename/folder and enable sharing. Of course both computers must belong to the same network group for easy access.

Should you need additional information, pls post back your Windows version.

Good luck and kind regards.

Can't access to another computer on same network

Turn on file and printer sharing for microsoft networks. Find it in network connections. Right click your connection, then select properties. You must also provide at least one file or folder to share before anything will be seen on the networked pc's.
