I have to repower my WD NAS unit everyday to give it a new IP address.
I have a WD MyBook World NAS drive ‘attached’ to a Sky Sagem wireless router- but this never shows on the attached devices section - I am therefore unable to reserve an IP address for it in the router software/config.
The WD software allows static IP ability - but the default gateway for the sky router returns as invalid (192.168.0.1) when entering the values and submitting. Though when set as default DCHP, the router IP address is clearly there and is I have typed.
Between them, I am at the end of my patience - so any advice would be gladly accepted.
thank you in advance
