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.
Be mucho blessed,

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
so you have 192.168.1.77 as the default ip address and 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask.
What Ip address does the computer you are trying to ping have is it in the range of 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.76 in the dos prompt and what is its subnet mask ?
type in ipconfig
what is the equipment between the p.c and the EFG250
what connects it to the network ? A switch are cisco vlans involved or cisco port filtering ?
Quick tip: when accessing the NAS-T2 from Linux, mount any NAS-T2 shares using smbfs, not cifs.
More detail: This tip presumes you're familiar with mounting filesystems in Linux and are trying to mount an NAS-T2 share in Linux. The older smbfs filesystem type for mounting Windows shares is deprecated in favor of the newer cifs filesystem type. However, the NAS-T2 is built on some older flavor of Windows and behaves very oddly when mounted as a cifs filesystem. Changing back to the older smbfs filesystem type solved all my problems.
Check on BlackArmor Manager that the FTP mode is enabled for the folder you want access to. You can check it by typing "http://192.168.1.66" in the adress bar on your explorer, enter your login and password ("admin" and "admin" by default), then click storage -> shares if "FTP" is disabled, click on the pen (modify) and enable it. don't forget to click "submit" ;-)
In your office network, for sure, you have a DHCP server who gave the IP addresses to all devices for that network and this seems to be the reason for why you could see your NAS. On home, you also need a DHCP server. You don't say anything about you home network. The best idea is to just make a temporary network with 2 devices: your computer and your NAS by connecting the NAS directly to your computer's network adapter, set the IPV4 IP for that adapter to the same class addresses as your NAS was set by default (usually NAS had "192.168.x.y" where "x" could be 0, 1 or 2 "y" could be any value between 1 and 254, but mostly, 1) and try to access it via http to manage him (need a user name and a password). For NAS default address and username and password, consult NAS user manual. Access it with from your preferred browser using: \\192.168.x.y
Once you gain the control, cut off his DHCP service and tell him to accept the IP address from the network defined DHCP. (btw: one normal DHCP server is allowed on one network! Cascaded DHCP also is allowed, but it's a little bit complicated) Good luck!
You seem to have a problem restoring a network mapping connection to a shared folder.
System error code 85 means "The local device name is already in use." This error code may also display as "ERROR_ALREADY_ASSIGNED" or as the value 0x55. You may receive the "The local device name is already in use" error message when you try to restore a network mapping connection to a shared network folder on a Windows XP-based client. To resolve this issue, remove the existing network mapping. Then create a new network mapping for the share. Your anti-virus program could also be part of the program. Try disabling the AV while you create the new network share. Hope this helps.

Same issue here
Running win XP on my laptop and I have my LaCie NAS on my network and was working fine 'til today.
Issue: unable to access my LaCie NAS
troubleshooting done:1- rebooting NAS 2-power cycling the whole network 3- also tried accessing NAS from a Mac Book (used to be able) 4- nable to ping it by name or by IP
I had one my NAS's shares mapped to Y:, Now I can see the share from my network places but when I go to map network drive the Y: is no more assigned to that share.
My next move would be to re-install the NAS but I want to know and make sure that this will not delete what I have on that NAS.
Thanks to anyone that would jump in and give a hand to a desperate novice in Networking
Check the user rights on the folder you are making? Also check if that folder is shared or not? Are you logging into both machines with the same username?
I would assign full rights to the username trying to access that particular folder from both pcs. Let me know
