Hello wdlive76 and others.
Your suggestion to not make my MBL a static ip adres in it’s own settings in stead of in the router fixed a lot more problems!
After I’d put my NAS device (MBL) to a static ip adress, it started giving these error messages. For example it gave error mesage 31652 when trying to generate a code for a device and error message 31602 when trying to generate web access. It also didn’t want to search for firmware. So basically the internet access on MBL went down when trying to put it on a static ip adress in the setting of the MBL itself.
You suggested to reserve an ip adress in my router for it, which I did. The ip adress was 192.168.0.102. Then I went to my router, went to reservation and filled in the MAC adress which is shown in the “network” option of the device. After that I filled in the ip adress which I wanted for it. I thought it would be nice to have the same ip adress as it already had. So I filled in 192.168.0.102. So with my devices MAC adress combined with the ip adress, my MBL had a static ip adress in the router.
I went back to the settings on MBL and turned static to DHCP. After that everything worked! No more error messages, generating codes was easy, I got easy access to WD photos (app), etc. So again, basically putting the device in static will make the device cause error messages.
So what you are saying is true! Do NOT put the MBL on static in its own setting, but make a reservation in your router. This fixed the error messages for me.
Again, thank you so much!
