Hi. I’ve spent many days looking for a solution on this but am getting no where, except becoming very frustrated! So im turning here incase anyone else knows of a solution I could try.
I can connect to my WD mybook Live whilst I am connected with my laptop (using Windows 7) to the Router (Zyxel P660HW) via a Lan Cable.
The second I unplug the lan cable from my laptop, I am no longer able to access anything on the MBL, neither can I see it in the Network and I’m unable to access it via ip address.
My laptop switches from LAN to Wireless automatically without any problem as I can still access the internet, so I dont believe its a simple connectivity problem from my laptop to the Router.
As far as I can tell when checking my router settings, I have disabled the firewall so im not sure how that could be causing any issue either.
I’ve tried resetting the router settings, and have re-installed the SW on my laptop for the MBL, but all without any success.
Interestingly I have WD2go and WD Photos installed on my iphone and ipad and they are able to access the MBL wirelessley over the wireless network, or remotely 3G without any problems…
Also another point worth mentioning is that I cant access the Zyxel router settings without being connected with the Lan cable to the Router (i.e. wirelessly entering the admin settings), but I dont know if this is standard or not?
Thanks a million in advance incase anyone has a tip for me…
