I have recently purchased the Seagate ST310005FDA2E1-RK 1TB Free Agent | Desk, and also a new Belkin N+ router.
I have manged to access the router and figure out how to get the drive recognized (after about 3 hours). I can make backups via windows backup program, but I can not use the Seagate software, which I would prefer! It doesn't show up in Disk management, but is recignized in My Computer (I have an XP desktop).
Anyone have any ideas?
P.S. When I came home last night, the seagate manager was green, but when I tried to open the program, it just came up as not seeing any external drives.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give!!

Had the same problem...got lucky figuring it out...
Access your Belkin Router - probably 192.168.2.1
Go down the the bottom to "Firmware update"
Download the file...browse to it on the Belkin screen...update firmware.
After I did that the Seagate 1TB drive showed up under Computer in Windows Explorer.
