Need help!

my router broke down, how can i conect to mycloud to a PC with out a router???

Thanks so much, im not a computer expert, just another normal person, and all my documents are stuck on the divice :@


You can try plugging the drive directly to the computer using a Ethernet cable.

are your PC and mycloud set to static or dynamic IP addresses?

do not plan on replacing the router? If you don’t plan on replacing the router and get connected I would immediatly set static IP addresses on both, I suggest static for the mycloud anyway

if you connect the PC an mycloud together as suggested above and the link lights come on you have a connection however you still may not be able to comunicate yet. if no link light you will need a crossover cable or switch or router to connect them
