Title: Firmware 1.07 Windows 7
Post by: bmwk100rs on April 07, 2014, 02:50:09 PM
After upgrading Firmware from 1.04 to 1.07 there are no network disks visible in my Windows 7 Pro network.
With the Run\\Rackstation command i am able to access my shared folders.
Downgraded the firmware to 1.04 ( without bricking my router ) everything is normal, and Harddisks are visible in my Windows 7 network.
Is there something in the settings changed what I have missed ?

FW Update Process (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=42457.0)

Router and Wired Configurations
Some things to try: - Log into the routers web page at 192.168.0.1. Use IE, Opera or FF to manage the router. Besure to log into the Admin account on the router.


Also ensure that the Local Domain name given on the router is the same as the workgroup name given on the Windows PCs as well or vs versa. Both should be the same.

I'll have a look at my 868L this evening as I'm on the same version.

Hi FurryNutz,
Thanks for your quick reply.
I am located in the Netherlands, wired connected to router from my Mac mini,
and performed a setup from scratch.
The settings I have made are the wireless settings for my iPads and iPhones.
The other settings are the factory settings. I"ve tried after my post on the forum
Firmware 1.06 with the same result. Downgraded again to 1.04.
On all my Macs I can connect in finder to all my networkdisks ( firmware 1.04
1.06 1.07 ). Is it possible that the new firmware closes a port on my router which
windows uses?

And you are using FW files from the EU region correct?

Downloaded Firmware from D-link in The Netherlands, and performed
Update as described in the manuals. I have also a ticket at D-Link support who are investigating
this issue. Browsing the internet I found this forum, and made a topic hoping someone here
has a solution concerning this issue.

Is everything connected directly to the 868L? No switches?

I'm seen the same thing here with my Mac Mini OSX 10.9.2. My DNS-345, and other devcies that were in the BROWSE window disappar. If I connect the Mini to my switch, I see my other network devices. I presume there is a problem on all FW versions after v1.04.

I have 4 Mac mini's, 2 Dune mediaplayers 1 Onkyo receiver a TV and 2 network printers connected to a HP Pro Curve switch. 1 Synology rack station, 1 Synology Diskstation and Buffalo Nas and my Win 7 PC are connected to a TPLink switch. The switches are connected to my DIR 868L and everything runs like a charme.
After updating the firmware there are no issues with the rest of my hardware, only with my Win 7PC, as described
in my first post.
I hope D-Link support can solve this, otherwise I will keep FW 1.04.
To FurryNutz
Thanks for your reply.

Did you ensure that your Windows PC is detecting the network and any new shares?
Was the Windows 7 PC on or OFF when you updated FW?

Tech Support BENELUX advised to install FW 1.07 and manual setup the router. ( They could not reproduce my issue ????? ).
PC connected directly to router, in the same IP-Range still the same problem. The only way I can access my network drives is with the RUN\\ command. Now i've made a shortcut in my favorites to access the drives.

I'll forward this on to my contact at D-Link for review here. I can't guarantee anything however I'll post back if I find out anything. I recommend next time you phone contact your regional D-Link support office, have them review your router and PC settings remotely using some remote access program so they can see what is going on for themselves.

On DIR-868L firmware v1.02 (I recently rolled back for testing something), my Windows 7 PC Network lists all four of my ShareCenters, wireless cameras, Boxee Box, printer, and PCs (wired/wireless) without issue.

These devices are connected in a combination of direct wired connection to the DIR-868L, wired through a switch, and wireless.

I just upgraded to FW 1.07b02 and have the same results as before. All devices are visible. I should note that when upgrading the firmware I did not perform a factory reset.  :-\

Let us know if you can test the version with out loading any saved configurations from previous versions...I've been testing with factory defaults. I'll look again and report back...

Last Saturday I was so P......D off, I disconnected my DIR-868 and configured my Time-Capsule, everything works flawless.
Stubborn as I am disconnected Time_Capsule and connected my 868L  and configured from scratch. And what happens it WORKS.
I can see in my network the icons from my network drives and can access them.
I have no idea what i missed.
THANKS to FurryNutz and JavaLawyer for their input.

Glad you got it working. I'm wondering if there is some configuration on the router that prevents the icons from appearing correctly.

Can you determine what you might have done differently on set up? Any chance you have a older saved config file and a current one?

The only thing I did disconnected all the cables including the power cable. On Sunday reconnected all the cables powered on the router and configured the router from scratch. I did not use an older config file.

Maybe a clean reset and set up was all that was needed. I'd do a new save config to file for future use.

Enjoy.
