So far this has been the least seamless pnp product I’ve ever had the misfortune to encounter.
Try as I might I cannot get any computer on the network to connect to mybooklive dashboard. I have cable internet, connected to a router, connected to an airport. I can see the mybook drive and the public folders on two windows 7 pc’s on the wireless network, and also on an XP desktop. The installation CD and software will not function on any of the three pc’s, it does not find the drive on the XP machine at all (even though I can see it and read to and write from it in explorer), and on the windows 7 machines, it finds the drive but then times out at the install stage.
Anyway, that’s not so important. What I need to be able to do is get into the dashboard and create some sort of network security and control the settings on the drive.
IE on the XP machine just times out.
Google chrome on the windows 7 machind also times out with this:The webpage at http://mybooklive/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
FIrefox on the windows 7 machine inexplicably defaults to some nonsense cash/credit advance site with the unfortunately similar moniker www.mybooklive.com.
I’ve tried this over the wifi, and now I’ve got the laptop connected by ethernet cable directly to the airport. I can still see the drive in explorer but I cannot get into the dashboard to make any setup changes.
