I bought a new MBL 2TB and opened today and connected all cables. I did the following way and faced some errors.
I connected the power and Ethernet port to my laptop directly. I want to do this way only atleast for time being.
I dont have dvd drive in my laptop so I downloaded the software from WD website.
When I tried to proceed the installation, it asked a update to new firmware, then it opened a web interface and it was very slow. Then while I was doing some settings, I did a change in static IP( I entered the IP of my wireless connection seen from cmd line). from then, the web interface page is not working. Also I got this error
30005 - Unable to retrieve data. Make sure there are no network connectivity issues and try again.
AFter somepoint the web interface itself could not able to open that page.
Now I could not do anything, as well I tried resetting using a pin from the back of MBL. That also doesnt help. I could not see any changes. How to reset actually?
Please help me for the followings in order to make it work,
Need to reset first and how to bring my web interface back in order to configure?
I need to get internet access for the following case ( my laptop should be connected to MBL directly). How should I configure my Network settings for this case?
My Wireless LAN IP is 192.168.1.47 ( for example) . Then how should I configure network settings of MBL in order to enable internet access?
Next I need to install the software and update the firmware.
Please kindly help me to resolve this issue.
It would be great if you can help me as soon as possible.
Thank you very much in advance!!!
