MyBookWorld II Running but not on Lan

My router died (I think). SO I plugged the MyBookWorld II (white light) into a Cisco 5 port switch. The internet modem is also connected to that switch which also connects to my computer. HOWEVER, try as I may, WD Link cannot find the storage unit and I don’t konw what to do. Buy another router? I’ve reset it several times, powered down, etc.

The unit is NOT on the LAN.


Can the device be plugged in with a USB cable? I tried it but got some weird E drive with an executable on it, Easy something. What is that?
