I just bought a media server(MS) with an Ethernet connection and attach it to my router(with wireless features). Connected to this router is my server and a number of wireless laptops. After setting up the system I am able to access my server or laptops from the media server end, ie the laptops and server appear on the media server. I am UNABLE to access the MS's hard drive from my laptops or server(ie no ICON/shared folders appears on my server or laptops), even though the media server has an IP address and I am to ping this IP address and get a response, ie no lost packets.

I then try using the net view command on this IP address I get the following message:

System error 53 has occurred
The network path not found.

My MS does not have that many options to change. This MS has a hard drive which I like to access which I cannot.

Many thanks if anyone can help. I can supply more info if required.

Could you share the exact make/model of this media server and the router?

I build the server myself, the router is Dynalink and media server is Noontec V8.

I am sure there is someone here is can tell me what error 53 means.
