MBWE seems to have had no issue connecting to Time Machine with the default password setup. After changing the admin and WD_Backup (Time Machine User) passwords, the connection to Time Machine was no longer active.
After restarting the MAC it was common to receive a MyBook error that notified you that there was an issue connecting to the NAS Server. To resolve these issues and maintain a solid and stable connection with Time Machine and the NAS for general storage access do the following:
Clear Default MyBook Connection from Start-up:
Setup User: admin (cont' from step 5 if you've followed step 4)
Setup User: WD_Backup (setting up Time Machine)
The following steps have resolved all connection issues experienced with MBWE II. Time Machine works flawlessly and MyBook always connects correctly on start-up. Hope this helps, good luck!

This is helpful, I think mods should make this thread a sticky.

I was excited to see this solution, but unfortunately it is not working for me.
I don't have the default MyBook connection as described in section 1
I followed all the steps in the second 2 sections but I still cannot connect as WD_Backup to the NAS for Time Machine.
It just refuses to work.

for some reason the web interface for the MBWEII is not allowing me to change the password for WD_Backup.
this is so frustrating!
thanks anyway for help, advice, etc...

no issues with the admin password. i did change it when i first hooked up the MBWEII. I can log in, but am unable to save a new password for the Time Machine user.
