My Cloud does not show in the browser when i go wdmycloud

I bought my Cloud 3 months back an connected to my router with the ethernet cable provided, I also connected my router to my laptop through similar cable. So far so good. I transfered my data to My cloud. Now i removed the cable connecting my laptop to the router, and tried to connect to My cloud through wifi, but WD doesnot connect now when i go to brower and type wdmycloud. Please note that My Cloud is still connect to the router with cable and blue light is on.

My laptop is connected to the same router.

Can someone please help.

Thanks in advance.


Did you set everything up in the Dashboard? Is your laptop and My Cloud in the same workgroup? Are you using Windows or what?
