Question about Linksys Wireless N Gigabit Router

1 Answer

Network path not found

Wow, what isn't wrong. I have three computers (one being a laptop) networked to a separate storage system where all of our files our stored. Initially I couldn't access the information at all - I used fixya and now I can access the file information, change the information, but are unable to save, move, copy, etc. The laptop says that the network path was not found (which was the original message for all). The wireless printer is also not working. I am able to send and receive messages from microsoft outlook, but it is using a desktop copy of the information, not my file information with contacts, calendar, etc. I have tried shutting down, rebooting, resetting, restoring to previous time - nothing. I have probably caused more problems playing around with it. HELP please.

I am not sure if your router is the problem here. Check the settings on your laptop.

Right-click My Computer
click Manage
click Services
scroll to Routing and Remote Access
left click Routing and Remote Access
click Properties
click (General tab) Startup type and select Disabled.
Also stop the service.

Also make sure that all computers belong to the same workgroup.

See if that corrects your Network path not found problem.

What do you mean by
"wireless printer is also not working"?
Does the printer work if it is connected to your router?
Have you checked the network settings on the printer (especially the IP address)?

If not, please let me know - come back here and leave a comment and a copy of your "ipconfig /all" output - I'm happy to help.

Media test failure


This error message may appear when the computer BIOS is set to boot from a network and cannot find a bootable operating system on the network or on any of the storage devices included in the notebook PC's boot path.
So, if you have any USB sticks or attached HDD's that do not have an install image remove them and reboot.
If the HDD has an operating system installed and it still won't work after removing any USB storage, check that the HDD is functioning properly.

Make sure you are logged in as the Administrator of your computer. Power cycle (turn it off and back on) the device. If that doesn't fix the problem. Try factory resetting the unit (depress the reset button on the back of the unit for 4-5 seconds).

I can see the Imogega Home Network Drive in my workgroup, including viewing the system info. I try to open one of the folders and I am told: \\Imoega-090c8b\pbsafebup is not accessible. You might not...


This (and other problems having to do with accessing the drive or its folders) can be solved by:

1. Removethe drive from its case
2. Plug it into a computer
3. Boot the computer to a Linux-based OS -- if you don't have a PC running Linux, download one of many Live CDs images available, e.g. Knoppix, and burn a CD with it (Live CD images are bootable), then boot the PC using the CD
4. Login as the root user and open a terminal session
5. If necessary, 'umount' the drive, e.g. 'umount /dev/sda2'
6. Run 'xfs_repair -L <partition>' where <partition> is the partition to be repaired - in my case it was /dev/sda2, so running...

xfs_repair -L /dev/sda2

...was the command to do the repair. Note that the command is cAsE sEnSiTiVe.

You may get a message about destroying a log file (that's what -L does) -- it's OK -- I've had to do this several times and no harm has come of it.

The process can take several minutes, and at the end there may be a message about a bad superblock -- this is also harmless, so far as I've seen.

7. Power down the PC
8. Remove the drive, put it back in its enclosure, and Voila! -- all should be OK upon booting it up!

I have a home wireless network and am using a My Book World Edition external drive. Three of my laptops can access the My Book but one keeps returning the error network path could not be found. Any ideas...


If all other pc's are able to connect and the one odd pc will not, your problem may be the odd pc's ip configuration. Check the ip addressing in the control panel to correct this. I would recommend making the settings the same as the one from a pc that connects to the My Book connection.

Good Luck.

Cannot share files/folders with home network...


Bill,

I understand the frustration and I will try not to add to it. I did a bit of searching and found one thread on another forum that was similar to your situation. This person said the following:

The solution was simple:

I was running NORTON 360.

Under firewall settings; disable personal firewall.

Once this is done, access is allowed to the host pc.

You can then set your permissions, create network paths and map network drives like you would normally do.

Bill, I can't tell you this will solve the issue but it did for this person.

Good luck

Can't share files/folders between networked computers...


I can answer this but I'm kinda winging it so you will have to figure some of this out for yourself.
By default, XP does not let you share your data over the network. Go into folder properties and enable simple folder sharing.
Go to control panel/network and enable file and printer sharing for your network adapter. Reboot and go.

Cant able to access the 1tb network storage


Consider a few things that may solve the problem:
1. this is how I always like to test; shut down the NAS drive for a minute and reboot; once rebooted see if it is accessible
2. need to know the ip address of the NAS drive and make sure that ip is not blocked by your system firewall (e.g. add that ip into trusted address on the firewall program; or temporarily disable any anti-virus or firewall and see if you can access, and if you can then it is the issue of firewall),
3.unless you have customized the settings, open my computer and on the addressbar type type the ip address if you know (if it is WD Mybook World then you can also try typing \\mybookworld on the address bar); in this case also try it by temporarily disabling any anti-virus or firewall program
4. one way you can figure out the ip for your nas drive is through the router's homepage; since I don't know your router type I can't give you specific steps; but try to get onto the router's main page and see the client's list or DHCP Client's List or something similar where you should see an ip also assigned to the NAS drive which is connected to the same router.

Post the feedback what happens... we'll see... good luck !!!
