Hello all, I will be as detailed as possible to get the best answer possible.
My main “desktop” computer is an iMac 27" with the latest OS installed. I have attached to it a netgear router from Cox Cable, model: CG3000D.
Everything in the house runs via the router’s wifi. Two smart tvs, two ipads, two iphones, my printer, and of course, the MyBookLive 2TB.
The MyBook is wired directly into the router.
Before moving and subsequently changing my router (Cox said I should), I was able to pick up the MyBook via the “network” link on my Windows 7 Laptop as well as my girlfriend’s macbook pro. We used XMBC to play movies onto our television that it streamed wirelessly.
For some reason, the laptops are no longer accessing the MyBook. Before the MyBook gave itself an IP address of .16 and now its .09 I can access the files/folder via the iMac but not through the laptops at all. Why is this network discrepancy happening? Also, I’ve changed the XMBC folders to link to .09 now, so they find the files, but seem to have trouble accessing them.
