I reformatted my drive, now the wifi is not working

i was having troubles getting my drive to erase files, so i erased the disk using the osx disk utility. I re partitioned it using osx extended (journaled) like it shows in the WD support pages, but now, the wifi won’t come back. Anyone know how i can fix that? the drive shows up fine and is recognized by my mac, but i cant reconfigure it, if i go to the config page, (mypassport.local) it just says site cannot be reached.

thanks to anyone who might be able to help me.

Oops. It may be possible that you reformatted the MPW and erased the WD software in the process and bricked the MPW. I would call the WD support.
