I recently replaced a defective MyBookLive with a new one (under warranty). The new drive was assigned a different IP address from the original (DHCP). With the old drive, the host name ‘mybooklive’ resolved to the correct IP address and I could access the web UI using ‘mybooklive/UI’. Since the upgrade, ‘mybooklive’ resolves to the wrong IP address (a different address from either the old or new MLB drive). I can access the web UI using the new IP address.
My MacBook Pro, MBL, and AT&T U-verse 2WIRE residential gateway are all connected to a NETGEAR GS105 switch. I’ve tried shutting down and restarting all of those devices, and I’ve also re-installed the WD MBL software, but none of that helped. The actual IP address that ‘mybooklive’ resolves to is the last IP address in the range allocated for DHCP. If I access the 2WIRE gateway via its web UI, it shows the correct IP address for the MBL. The NETGEAR switch has no UI so I can’t check or configure it.
I don’t believe this is a problem with the MBL, but I was hoping someone in this forum might know what I need to do to fix this. If I don’t get an answer here, I’ll try posting in the AT&T forums.
