Ok Here it is,

I connect wirelessly to my D-Link DIR-685 router and my D-Link DNS-323 NAS is connected to the 685 via ethernet. I can see other computers and devices on the network just not the DNS-323. I had no dramas with it in Vista. Windows 7 just does not see it???

Can you find out the NAS IP address from the router web-admin page and see if you can ping it from the Windows 7 PC? Then can you try connecting to it directly by typing the IP in to explorer, for example: \\192.168.1.5.

Forget it I ended up switching out the ethernet cable and it's working now. I always seem to forget the simplest steps in fault finding. Thanks.

We have all been there and done that.

You must have remembered somewhere down the road so you didn't totally forget :)

Congrats on finding the trouble.
