My Book World Edition (white light) won't connect to Netgear DGN2000 Router

Trying to connect MyBook World to my Mac through my Netgear DGN2000 Wireless router.

No issues with My Book when plugged directly into the computer… can complete all the initial setup options. When I plug it into my modem however it’s a different story.

Usually on the first try I can see it in finder, but if I try and connect it lags and eventually times out then disappears, then you won’t see it again unless you restart the MyBook hard drive and even then sometimes it won’t show either… no idea how to get it working! Any help appreciated :slight_smile:

It’s clearly as issue with the modem but I’m stuck! And yes the modem has the latest firmware…

Might be the Netgear firewall blocking the MBW. I was bored :smiley: and looking on the Netgear web page I found this, let me know if it works.
