Resolved Question

One Computer cannot see Network Drive

by freddwyer / April 1, 2014 9:52 AM PDT

I have a Cisco Linksys E3000 router. I have one laptop connecting to it via wireless. There is one desktop connecting via cable. I have a 16GB Flash drive plugged into the Cisco as a network drive. Both of these systems see it and access it well. I have just added another desktop also hardwired. This new desktop can use the router to surf the net, but it doesn't see the network drive. All 3 systems are running Win 7 pro, 64 bit. How do I get the new system access to the network drive?

Thank you. I went to the URL you listed and solved the problem. I just needed to go to "map network drive." Wish I could say I now know how to do this, but in truth I sort of fumbled my way through. Might be able to do it again if necessary, but at least I know where to start. Thanks again.

I apologize that I didn't know which it was.

But the link seemed to cover almost all the areas required. Good to read you got it working.
