Hi, I’m trying to use an ethernet cable to connect a My Book Live direct to a win-7 64-bit system that is already linked to a wifi hotspot. It senses the cable and calls it a local area network without internet access, but I can’t find a way to pull up the hard drive. Can this be done?
I bought this drive about a year ago without reading the fine print… I had the impression that these “wifi drives” had their own wireless built in! So it was a disappointment to realize it needed to connect to a router - and my wireless hotspot that I use as a router has no ethernet port. I set it aside thinking eventually I’d figure something out… so can anyone give me any advice? I actually do have a router lying around, but I don’t think I can simultaneously connect to two wireless routers, right? The computer in question is a cryptocurrency mining rig, so I need it to stay connected to the wifi hotspot 24/7.
