MyBookLive cannot connect wireless with Windows 8

I can't connect to MyBookLive using my laptop running Windows 8 when using the wireless connection. Works OK when wired via ethernet. Can connect OK with another laptop running Windows XP via wireless. Any ideas ? Thanks.

Re: MyBookLive cannot connect wireless with Windows 8

Thanks for the reply, but it did not solve my issue. I did download the patch and force the MyBookLive to the DLNA media server. I still cannot connect or install on my Windows 8 laptop using a wireless connection. Install OK when ethernet wired, but will not read the drive. I have an older XP laptop that reads the MyBookLive OK when connected to local network via wireless.
