I hooked my WD harddrive up to a tower PC and installed OpenMediaVault. It was connected via ethernet. After each step along the way, I’ve tried reconnecting the harddrive to the WD network card, but I get a SOLID RED LIGHT, and I can’t connect. So it keeps going back and forth between the WD network card and the tower PC.
apt-get update. Nothing.
I tried commenting out the extra mounts in fstab. Nothing.
I’m not understanding the mixed back-and-forth talk here in the forum.
Does anyone know how to get it to reconnect, when I plug the harddrive back into the WD network card? I don’t even care if the light keeps showing red, just as long as I can connect.
(Summary: When the harddrive is connected to the tower PC, it broadcasts over the wifi, and I can access OpenMediaVault through my laptop’s browser. When I reconnect the harddrive to WD network card, it doesn’t broadcast, and I can’t access it from my laptop’s browser, any more.)
