I just bought the WD livewire set today, and thought it would be easy as pie to set up, but that is not the case! It plugs in fine to my router, and the other half connects fine to my plug socket. When I plug my laptop in via ethernet that works fine too. However, I get a problem when I try and plug in a second laptop - it just won’t connect to the internet! It doesn’t get a valid IP address and basically won’t work. It seems like the Livewire boxes aren’t doing DHCP - they are just passing the modem’s IP address to the first computer and then nothing else works afterwards. Is this how it is meant to work? If not how do I fix it!?
I should note that I only have mac and linux computers available so I can’t run the Livewire Utility.
Thanks for your help!
