I’m glad to hear you’ve got a solution that is working. In my case though it’s not the router. I am convinced that this product is not usable for my needs. The firmware on my router is up to date. I’ve even tried connecting the drive to another router that I have, tried both routers with one of them set in bridge mode with the MBL on it…nothing works.
What I’ve found is that if the drive is plugged in to my network it interferes with the conection esp video playback even when the files are stored locally on the PC that is trying to play back. The only way to resolve it is to power down the MBL then re-boot the PC.
I’ve turned everything off on the drive ( Twonky, ITunes etc…) as I only wish to use this drive as a central back up
for our computers. I’ve reset, both quick and full factory restore, and have decided that the hours I have spent trying to make this work are just not worth it.
I am going to try and return it, and am going to use an old P4 3.0 extreme edition with a set of W/D SATA Rapturs set up in a raid configuration as a file server for storage. If they don’t take it back it’s going into the trash. My time is valuable and this product has consumed enough of my time.
