Hello, I'm sorry if this sounds like a really stupid question, and/or has been answered before. I have just recently bought the WZR-HP-G3000 and a Western Digital Essentials 2Tb xHDD for my network space. After being a slight idiot and not realizing that the Airstation required XFS formatting on the drive, and spending around three days transferring files the 'Hard Way' over the wireless network (please, groan all you want at my stupidity if there was another option). I tried accessing the NAS from my Windows7 laptop (this is a mixed network, I have a desktop running XP Pro SP3, my wife's laptop runs Vista and my work laptop runs W7). Unfortunately I opened WIndows explorer on the 7 machine and it cannot see the NAS. I was going to try to access it through its IP (if I remember correctly you go to 'run' and then type '//*driveIP*' to do this) and then if it sees it that way try to get it to map the drive.
I have one slight problem though, I do not know exactly how to determine what IP the NAS has been assigned by the router. If anyone happens to know an easy, pain free way of determining this, I would be greatly appreciated.

you can only use up a to a 500gb drive in xfs and the ip should be \\rotuers ip address or even try \\the drives host name.

Can the drive be used in its full capacity in FAT? I have seen some say that they can use a 1tb drive with this format, but some have said no. I would rather like to get the full usability of this drive. Am I simply going to have to plug it into a computer and use it as a network drive that way?

you've mentioned a WZR-HP-G3000 and the subject is about a WZR-HP-G3000N
We don't have either of those part numbers in the USA, and we have a lot of part numbers beginning with WZR. Please specify the exact part number of the product.

You should be to use a 1TB drive with FAT32, I am. Web Access is at 192.168.2.1:9000
Port 9000 is usually the default IP, otherwise try using the Buffalo NAS service.
