Windows 7: How can I set up backup to network storage?

How can I set up backup to network storage?

I'm running Windows 7 on my Lenovo T400. I use a wireless router and a LinkSys NAS200 network storage. I'm having a hard time trying to set up backup on the net storage. It worked fine with my XP laptop. I can access the files on the net storage using my browser, so it appears that the network is working, but I haven't been able to map a network drive, and the Windows 7 backup can't find it.

Any help?

Thanks,

Did the LinkSys NAS200 come with an install CD/DVd to map drives & setup a backup program ?

Thanks for your quick reply!

I think so, but I haven't been able to find it yet. I'll tear the place apart today and maybe - But I first installed it on an XP 32 bit machine. I don't know if the same install disk would work with my present 64 bit Win 7 Lenovo laptop. I was hoping to find a place to download the current version.

Thanks,

I found the CD and ran it to install NAS200 on my laptop. It still can't find the network drive. I can ping it, but now I can't even reach it with a browser. Frustrating...

I contacted LinkSys support. The rep I chatted with said the problem was above his level of expertise and gave me a phone number to call. I called it and they finally connected me with a "Senior Support Technician." She tried to help, but finally said LinkSys doesn't support the NAS200 with Windows 7.

If no one has any ideas that work, I'll just have to get a newer file server - but it won't be a LinkSys product...
