MBW Connection Failed from Mac OS X 10.7.2

It worked for months before it happened this week.  From Finder/SHARED, the MBW drive returned Connection Failed after pushing the “Connect As…” button from MacBook Pro (MBP) running OS X 10.7.2 Lion.  

The firmware version is 01.02.12 with MioNet.

I tried admin and another registered user with admin right.  I got Connection Failed.

However, I can connect as WD_Backup, but then I was not able to access my shares in the drive.

From a browser I could log in and do everything in Basic Mode and Advanced Mode.

I then tried connecting via MacBook Air (MBA) running OS X 10.7.2 Lion.  It was successful initially.  But then after I changed the name of a Private Share and/or a Registered Name, the Connect As… returned Connection Failed.

Check out this tutorial, it’s for the MB Live but it can help you with the MB World as well.
