Windows 7: An error happened during the mapping process.

Did you disable the A/V or uninstall it?

I'm running 133NA firmware came out 1/19/10 but never had a map problem with the older firmware.

What version of the firmware are you running?

Found this but assumed you weren't using the public connection option because you are at a Home-office.

The computer is running Windows 7 and is connected to a network that is assigned to the "Public place" network location. When a computer is on a network assigned to the “Public place” location, Windows cannot correctly place it on the network map. To fix this problem, you can try changing the network location to "Private" or connecting to a network that is assigned to the "Private" network location.

You can also use the standard Workgroup or Homegroup which will allow you to show up on the map. Network discovery also needs to be enabled in the Advanced Network and Sharing page but for other machines to show up and for standard sharing you need to have that enabled anyway.

There is a trouble shooter for this also.

Well, this looks like it's going nowhere, so I'm going to restore my brand new machine to my backup system image and see if I can get back to a previously working state.

Could be a bad Win7 installation but I suspect it's something that was inadvertantly installed after the fact. Just be sure and check the map function after installing each piece of software so maybe you can nail down the cause that way.

Thanks for the info. I have not tried anything that recent and am spending time in the D-Link forums now. I see a lot of issues regarding the USB support. Perhaps it relates to my Windows problem, perhaps not, but I'm doing my homework.

No, I would not connect as a public place. It's a home network. While I am trying to solve this problem nothing else is plugged in. I like to reduce the number of variables at any given time.

It's just hard to have the patience.

As I said, the network mapping worked at one point. I just wouldn't know at WHICH point it stopped working. As it's a new PC, I don't mind absorbing a little pain to back track the installs.
