Ethernet Connection - Router to Mybook Live 1 GB


Would I be able to connect physically to the WD box by connecting ethernet cables direct from (3) PCs to the spare ports on the router which is then connected to the WD device.

The reason for this is that the network connection can sometimes drop which then stops us accessing the WD drive.

I don’t want to overload the CPU with ethernet traffic and cause a problem?

How would the mapping to the drive then work?

Many thanks,

Sure can.  I have a tv and bluray player plugged into my router lan ports, and occassionally a laptop.  You can transfer or stream from mbl without the router having an internet connection.

You said the “network connection” sometimes drops.  I’m not sure what you mean here.  If your router has a wireless radio, are you saying that sometimes the wi-fi connection drops?
