I'm having serious problems running a Snap Server. I run it as an extra hard drive. No operating system, just a file holder. It only seems to work if I run it through a network router called Linksys (BEFSR41 V4). Mind you, I dont know if it can work directly, this is only the way I figured out how. Irritating, but it works....sort of. Mind you, the router is worthless for anything else because I cannot configure it for the internet.

Now, the main problem. I disconnected everything to change locations, and now the server wont work. All the lights are on on the router and server, but when I try to map the drive, it says;

"the mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occured: The workstation driver is not installed."

I tried looking for the drivers for both pieces of hardware, but I dont know where to get them, yes I know, manufaturers websites, but I can't find them there.

I have a windows XP Home OS on an Emachine computer. I'm running SP2. The device manager gives me no answers, not even a warning.


Can someone help?
