My WD My Passport Wireless Pro’s original HDD died on me. As I am already past any warranty I opened the device and replaced the original HDD by a new one of the same capacity (but different manufacturer).
After this replacement I have reset the device (to also reset the wifi password to the default, which should be the last 8 characters of the serial n° of the new disk). When I boot the device I see the wifi, and when I enter the last 8 characters of the serial n° of the new disk I get a message that I cannot connect to this wifi network.
In order to cross-check I’ve entered the old password and then I get the message that the wifi password is not correct.
It would thus seem that the new password is correct (last 8 characters of serial n° of new disk), but that the device somehow blocks the connection.
Can anyone help me to get my device working again?
I would like to get use this again as this is my on the go backup device for photoshoots.
Thank you in advance for your help.
