I have a mybook live hooked up to my netgear wnr2200 router (which is then linked to a motorola cable modem…dont think this is important) and am having trouble mostly with smartware.
I installed wd smartware and quick view and it worked fine, however after the first time i shut my laptop down (wirelessly connectied) it never worked the same again.
When i started up my computer it appears that it doesnt reconnection properly.
Orginally when i hovered over the quickview icon in the tray it came up with 13% used a reading of ‘ok’ (or somethingsimilar) against Temperature. Now, i get 0% used and ‘unknown’ temperature.
I am trying to use smartware for my backups, and after the first connection, it doenst continue with the subsequent backups.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
NOTE: I dont know if this will affect anything…but i have assigned an IP address to the mybook live on my router, but i havent assigned an address for my computer
