I have a MyBookLive Duo 6TB only about 3 months old.
I have loaded some films onto it, but not (intended to) turn on any of the “backing up” software.
After about 4 weeks we found that whenever it is plugged in, our househoild LAN (a BT Infinity 3 Unlimited internet & LAN) just grinds to a halt, and none of the household PCs can get reliable internet.
Unpluggin it from the LAN cable clears the problem for the home PCs.
When we now plug it back in , it is whirring away and doing something over the LAN that immediately jams the LAN, so that we cannot open the MBLD device web page to access any controls to try to control anything.
What is it doing over the LAN (when it should be sitting passively as a file store?)
How do I get access to it to stop it doing it?
Any help (that a not very technical user can understand…) very welcome.
