I got today a 4 TB MyBook Live Duo based on reviews from alot of users and spent the last 5 hours setting it up to work with my wireless router and my MacBook Air and iPhone/iPad. I can’t believe that it is marketed as “Plug and Play” device. I am quite IT savvy and it took all this time and still did not achieve a full functioning network storage.
The current setup is as follows:
1- MyBookLive Duo connected directly to a wireless Router (Huawei Echolife HG521 Router).
2- MyBookLive has a reserved fixed IP address assigned to its MAC address
3- The Router is setup with DHCP enabled and UPnP enabled. The router does not have any multi-cast DHCP option.
4- MyBookLive is setup with DHCP enabled.
I was able to intermittently find MyBook Live Duo and MyBook Live Duo Backup on Finder on my MacBook Air but after few seconds it disappears.
MyBook Live Duo is accessable from my iPhone and iPad using WD 2Go application however all my data that I need to move to MyBook Live Duo is on my MacBook Air and I cannot seem to be able to make the MyBook Live Duo visible on the Mac.
I have already upgraded the firmware today.
Any quick help will be much appreciated.
