Question about SMC Barricade g SMC2804WBRP-G Wireless Router
Hi, i have this Freecom External Hard Disk connected via cable to the router, but even if i can ping it from my computer (wireless connected), i can't see it in the network resourses. I've tried turning off all firewalls, but nothing happened.
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.

From your description, I am assuming you have a direct ethernet connection from an RJ45 connection in a jack in the wall. If this is the case, then you would just need to purchase a wireless router (linksys, D-link, netgear, etc). Connect the ethernet connection from the wall to the routers internet or WAN port. You will need to access the routers firmware configuration and set it to connect with PPPoE, so get your username and password from your ISP if you are not sure what it is.
You will be able to continue to have the PC plugged into the router with an ethernet cable, and then run the laptop with a wireless connection, just be sure to configure the laptop with the security key if applicable.
If you were using a software PPPoE connection on your PC, quit using it. Just set your network adapters on both computers to DHCP, and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps

Are you trying to configure the router wirelessly. Connect your computer to the router with a lan cable and then access the router and change its wireless settings. since you cannot change the wireless settings wirelessly as you will get disconnected.

Sounds like the router is about to die. I had the same issue with a wireless router a few years ago. It would broadcast but I would not be able to get onto the wireless no matter what I did but plugging straight into the modem and it worked just fine. If you've done a hard reset and it is still not connecting or staying connected, it is about time to replace the router.
