I’ve had this for a couple of years and it’s been working great. About a month or two ago it started falling off the netowrk and I’d have to restart it to successfully connect. Now it turns on fine, all lights are working, and I can hear the drive spinning. I can ping it and it responds just fine, but it’s inaccessable on my network and I can’t get the web access to open.
I have reset it (several times at this point) so I know it’s defaulitng back to “admin” 123456 and [\mybookwork](file://%5C%5Cmybookwork) or [\wdstorage](file://%5C%5Cwdstorage). Trying direct access to the ip address doesn’t get me there either. No matter if I use the IP or the name, no matter if I use IE, firefox, or chrome I can not get it to load the interface (and therefoer I can’t test the user name and password)
Couple of other things:
When it was first setup, it was on another older xp box that I no longer have. Both machines in my office are vista home
I changed my router about a year ago but didn’t have any problems with mbwe until recently
I have tried to plug the mbwe directly into my ethernet on my computer and mount the drive and it’s not finding it
4. I have no idea how to turn on or use ssh (assuming that is something you would suggest , pointers would be greatly appreciated).
Thank you…the last 5 years worth of pictures of my kids are on that drive and I’m desperate not to lose them
