Help needed - WD Live Hub


#1

Have no local network. (have an PC of course)

I thought I could connect the WD direcly to my PC and then transfer directly from my PC and to the WD? DO I reallly have to put it on an USB-devise and then into the WD ?

You need to do a search on the Forum for “crossover”.  I think you may be able to connect your PC directly to the Hub via ethernet ports.  You will need a crossover ethernet cable (versus a standard one) and I think you need to manually deal with the IP addresses on the PC & Hub.  Here is one link…sure there are more.
