Yes we don't have a 615 and I have a DGL however we can assist in the forums by using the emulators DLink has provided us to help get an idea of the UIs for each router.  ;D I guess he'll have TO be patient then. Hehe.

Mate I see the Win7 computer on the Network in server but i cant access it when I double-click on it.
But I cant access any XP computer thru the lappy

In this case the Win7 lappy is
connected thru WiFi
Has the following "Advanced sharing settings"
-Network Discovery turned on
-File and Printer sharing on
-Public folder sharing on
-Media streaming on
-40 or 56 bit encryption
-password protected sharing off
-allowing windows to manage homegroup connected

*Network set as Work Network
*Workgrup is "Workgroup"


But I had got access to all my computers ( xp to win7 and win7 to xp) by doing something to the settings but now I cant.Dunno why???


and now when I create the network map it shows :

WIN7_________________?Unknown______pratrouter(name of my router)__________Internet

And that question mark is "big blue question mark" icon having a name Unknown.
Its a good sign because last time the network map was similar to this when it was stable.... :) :) :) :) :) ;D ;D ;D ;D
