I recently bought one of these and have been occupied many hours (+10) trying to get this unit working. Everything works from the USB-port but the LAN-port does not do the job. I can access YouTube and I can see my different pc’s on the net but not the shares. I earlier used firmware 1.01.17 and after an upgrade to 1.01.24 today I got a little further. The error message has changed and now only my password or username is wrong. I installed WireShark and put the euipment on a little hub isolated from all other equipment. The WD TV Live requires a workgroup WORKGROUP so I made this. I also saw a username that the unit was trying to use so I created this user with a known password. Now it accepts the username but still I am not able to see my files. In the “Capture” from WireShark I can see my filenames so there is some kind of meaningful communication. I have tried to contact WD and they escalated my case but still I have no solution. Finally I returned the unit to the vendor. It simply isn’t good enough yet.
Sorry about that.I would rather have this box.
