First of all I want to say that I am considering myself a very tech savy and my issue is killing my knowledge. I just installed WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN, and could not got it to work the first time, this is my design… Got a cisco DPC3008 Modem with Comcast, which is connected to a cheap 10/100/1000 TRENDnet unmmanaged switch, my computer and my linksys wireless router is connected at this switch and everything is working so far but as soon I connect the WD to the switch even thou that I have a link displaying 1000 connection and the WD show a blue led display my network could not find the WD.
I also tried to put a static IP on the WD but no luck…so I decided to connect the WD to my wireless router 10/100 and from there my network can see it, but only 10/100. The only configuration I have made on my linksys wireless is changing its IP to 192.168.1.10 since the cisco modem is by default 192.168.1.1 and my IP starts at 192.168.1.100. What am I missing? I would like to use the WD on a 1000gb environment. thanks.
