Have a brand new My Book Live 2tb. Want to connect it to my Bob wireless router (iiNet-supplied) so I can back up wirelessly from a laptop (Windows 7) and desktop PC (Vista) on my home network.
Should be simple. According to the Quick Installation guide I should be able to plug it all together, power up and the set-up process will automatically discover and walk me through set-up.
But when I try to install it using the supplied disk it doesn’t detect the My Book unit.
* The unit is not discoverable on my wireless network but it is when I connect it directly to my laptop using the ethernet cable supplied
* My home network settings are for all computers on it to be discoverable
* The iiNet technician I spoke to created a new IP address for the unit while it was connected with the cable but when we tried to find that address when it was reconnected though the router it was still not discoverable
* The My Book Dashboard addresses (supplied in the WD troubleshooting bumpf) cannot be accessed via the browser
Any suggestions? Could I have stuffed up setting up my home network? (I’m no expert in these matters)
