Windows 7: Cannot access a network

Cannot access a network


I live in a studenthome, where everyone has a single networkoutlet. This outlet normally allows you to access a networkdisk with all kinds of data. Since yesterday I connected a router between my outlet and my pc, so I could also connect it to my own NAS and xbox. This however meant I can no longer know how to connect to the original network disk. Is there anyway to connect to it through my router?
The disk is called pino, normally I could connect through window+r \\pino. I tried running \\krakeelhof\pino and krakeelhof\pino, but it doesn't seem to work.

Many thanks,

When your computer was originally connected to the jack, your computer received a DNS server IP address from the schools DHCP server. Try configuring that DNS server IP address statically on your computer when you have your personal router inbetween.
