Windows 7: Can map network drive on one computer but not the other?

Thanks for all the help chev65, but here I am, scrambling around in the dark dragging all the people who tried to help down with me all because the mapping worked perfectly fine on one win 7 computer but not the others. The obvious problem would suggest the other computers right? Dang asus. Actually this is my 2nd RT-AC68U cause I had to take the first one back to staples and exchange it cause it wouldn't grab an IP address from the modem. My ISP could see the router from the modem but it just wouldn't ask for an IP? I should have known to troubleshoot this dumb router days ago.

Update for anyone who is struggling to find a solution for this problem in the future. My problem was I kept checking for firmware updates through the asus 192.168.1.1 control panel and it always said I was running the newest version and no updates available.

My version was 3.0.0.4.374.371. I finally did a manual look on the asus page last night and lo and behold there was 3 newer updates??? So I updated to the latest 3.0.0.4.374.573 beta and my drives all show up fine now.

I hate to quote myself but when your right your right. Yes checking through the routers interface for firmware updates doesn't really work. Asus is the place to go for those.

I would think they would come up with a firmware update to fix the problem in this case.

That is a recent router with USB 3.0 support etc. so they probably don't have all the bugs worked out just yet.

I wish you had mentioned this part earlier though.
