I have Win7 Pro 64-bit, with 16GB of memory.
I have just been connected to fibre broadband, with a new Sky router, to which my WDTV unit is connected by cable. At first, everything seemed to be fine - I could access both the WDTV and its connected external HDD with no problem from my computer, but communication has stopped the other way. I can no longer access my shared computer folders from the WDTV unit. When I try, I get the error message “Unable to connect to the requested source.” Obviously, the password and PIN have changed for the router, but I can see nowhere in the WDTV Setup for changing these. I have tried investigating Network Setup on the WDTV, but this seems OK. When I use “Check Connection” in Network Settings, I receive the message “Network connection check passed”. To my dumb mind this means that the unit is connecting with my computer - only I can’t access anything on the computer.
I should also say that everything else is fine with the router - I have no problems with the Internet. The only other relevant factor I can think of is that I am using Open DNS, with an IP address of 188.8.131.52, but I have been using this for two months, with no problem - I did not have to change settings on the WDTV when I set it up. (And anway - “Network connection check passed”.) My problem has arisen only with the installation of a new router. Lastly, the WDTV shows up in the list of attached devices in the new router’s web page.
If anyone can suggest a solution, I would be very grateful.
