Running Windows 7 64 bit, the WD live tv is hooked up through cable, the router/modem is Actiontec supplied by my internet service provider (verizon), the version of the WD software is .11
I am able to access the share folders for a second or two in either video or music screens after which the message “there was a problem connecting to your network, the device could not connect to your network” pops up. I reset the device once from the recessed button on top of unit, when it came back I was able to watch a movie stored on my computer for about 7-8 min and then same message pops up. I was able to view pictures also in an earlier attempt but for some reason I can no longer have access to the shared media folders anymore.
When trying get access through network shares I get the “invalid user name or password message” although I do type in the correct name and password. What is the point of that anyway if I can get access through the media servers menu without a passowrd. Actually, what is the difference? between media servers and network shares that is.
There is a second computer as part of my home network and that one is connected wirelessly to the router, it seems like I can access the shared folder files on that one just fine with the wd live tv, ie, I can watch movies stores on that computer normally.
You Tube works just fine and so is the second computer, therefore, I don’t buy the router not being compatible with the wd device and I am tired of tweaking this thing, is there a solution to all my problems.?
