I think Netgear has something to download to set it up in W7. but that I think is jsut in case it doesn't work. It worked setting up by just login in. and on my (wired) desktop I can access the HDD. When I log into the router from the wireless laptopm, I also can see the HDd in the router setup menu. It's just I don't see it on the explorer, like the other network folders.
I'm out of town right now, but will try to wire the laptop to the router to see if that helps.
