I’m running Windows XP SP3 and I’ve setup a wireless network in my house. My WDTV live (with firmware 1.04.17_v) is connectiong to the wireless network properly. I can go on the Internet and so on…But when I try to access a shared folder from my desktop computer, the problems begin. The device ask me for a ACCOUNT and PASSWORD to login ? I have NO password on my desktop computer. When using the default account : annonymous and pass : (blank) it says that my account/password is invalid.
I’ve tried seting up a password on my Desktop computer just to try. The passowrd was 5 letters long. When I would submit my account and this 5 letter password, the password had about 12 stars (*) entered in the rectengular box. And when connecting, it would invariabely return the message Invalid account and password. (I then disabled this password on my desktop computer…)
How come it promps for a account and password when I have not set one?
How come the password seems to be « modified » from what I enter? (from 5 caracters to about 12…)?
