Wireless network storage and Win7

Hi,
I have been using a d-link wireless access point for some time now, with a worldbook 1tb networked HD plugged into it, which i used to access/share files wirelessly.

Since upgrading to windows 7 i can no longer access my hard disk files, just not showing in network places. this is the same on any instance of windows 7.. but works fine with an xp machine i recently tested with.

is there any settings in windows 7 that i can adjust here.. nic or otherwise?

thanks guys

first of all do you know the ip address of the network drive?
Have you tried creating a shortcut that points directly to that ip?
