Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under router.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?


You have to have something shared out on the each PC to be able to make the connection to the right path. A drive or folder needs to be shared out. Then you should be able to connect to that shared folder in the following manor:
\\192.168.0.###\sharedfoldername

You'll need to refer to MS support site for help and information regarding sharing of folders an work group names.

Try using the IP address of the PC instead of the host name...

  • Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the router. Setup/Networking. This ensures each devices gets its own IP address when turned on and connected, eliminates IP address conflicts and helps in troubleshooting and maintain consistency for applications that need to connect as well as mapped drives.
  • Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
  • If you have any of these options, Try turning OFF Short GI, WLAN Partition, Extra Wireless Protection if you have it.
