    under network in windows 7 ultimate explorer I see 3 computers (my desktop, my laptop, and something that says cisco#####) is that my router and why is it calling it a computer? If I double click theres nothing there. Also below computers is Media Devices/ bill-laptop. why is this here, how does media devices differ from computers. lastly below all that is Network Infrastructure and again cisco#####. I double clicked and bottom of screen says installing drivers, now says microsoft wireless router module driver software installed successfully.I have a linksys by cisco router (installed 2 years ago) so not understanding what is installing and why?

    right click on the space and then sort by - category and you should see the cisco under infrastructure

    mine is shown under computers and infrastructure wag32N - as i also have a share on the router to a harddrive

    windows 7 has a default media service and usually set to share
    and my router has a media server - so also shown there as well

    heres a picture of mine
