I have a Buffalo Link Station Drive on my network we are on the LAN side of a Sonicwall firewall router that issues DHCP 192. addresses. My Windows 7 workstation as well as the Buffalo drive pick up their respective 192.XXX.XXX.XXX address from the Sonicwall based on their mac addresses. Everything worked fine at one time. I was able to used Windows explorer and go to "network" and view the Buffalo drive, save and retrieve files from it.
Some time ago the icon changed when I click on "network" in Windows Explorer. Now instead of a drive icon I get a Windows Media Player icon and I can only see media type files, music, video, etc. What happened? How do I fix it and return it to "normal"?
