I updated my new MBL 2 TB to the lastest firmware (can’t confirm version number because I can’t access the dashboard), and switched to the WD DLNA server; however, my samsung tv says it can’t find media.
Oddly, the samsung tv will let me browse the folders and see the media but aborts 90% of the time when I try to view a movie. I have updated the firmware on the Samsung to the latest version too.
I chose to use the WD DLNA after multiple issues with Twonky. BTW, Twonky worked fine with my nexus 7 while the WD DLNA doesn’t work at all with it.
I can see the files on the MBL in explorer and even play them on several different computers with Media player, VLC, etc.
I have reset the MBL mulptiple times using the reset button, and I’ve reset the router multiple times. None of my 12 other devices able to connect to the network/internet have issues - stability, speed, etc. The only thing that doesn’t work is the MBL.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the WD software by downloading the latest version. I was able to access the dashboard for an hour or so, but now I get a “connection to the server was reset” in both Firefox and Chrome.
I set up ssh, and previously setup an ftp connection. I can’t connect via ftp using Filezilla either. Because I can’t access the dashboard or establish an ftp connection I can’t post a log.
The problem occurs wired or wirelessly.
Everything worked great for a few days after updating the firmware and switching to the WD DLNA server, but now the MBL is unstable to the degree it’s unusable.
Lastly, I am still able to move, delete, and add files in windows explorer even though I can’t access the dashboard via a shortcut or typing the address directly into the browser. Clearing browser caches, as expected, has no effect.
Light is flashing green on front, and when I reset the MBL the led progresses through the color changes as described elsewhere in normal fashion.
I’ve got a DIR-615 Dlink router, all the systems I’m using to trouble shoot this are Windows 7. I’m not sure about my router specs, but I can use my fiber optic connection to download a flick in 25-30 minutes, so bandwidth doesn’t seem to be an issue. I can stream to Android and Apple devices seamlessly.
I even reserved an IP address for it to see if that would help (192.168.0.108) but disabled the reservation as it had no effect.
I can log in with putty, but don’t know where to go from there to address this issue.
I’m out of ideas.
Any help is much appreciated.
