My setup is
PC - Windows 7 64bit Hardwired to:
a switch (TRENDnet TPE-S444) wich is hardwired to:
WD Live hub
and my modem ( motorola sb5101)
Everything was working fine with my old setup wich WAS a linksys router running Tomato 1.28. However with that setup I was having issues getting internet to other devices in my house so I got out the TRENDnet switch. The switch got internet devided to all the other devices in my home hohever…
I am no longer able to access my WD live hub from my PC and of coarse also not able to access my PC from my WD live hub.
The odd part is the WD live hub can access the internet I tested this by running an app from the WD live hub
things I have tried: ***aside from reading and Googleing literaly for 5 hours straight)
-restoring factory settings on the WD live hub
-automaticaly seting up network conection from WD live hub
-manualy setting up network from WD live hub
-rebooting all devices
I should also note that when I open the “see full map” in Window 7 “network and sharing center” it shows that my PC and WDLiveHub are conected to the switch wich is conected to a gatewat wich is conected to the internet. as far as I know I do not have a gateway between my switch and the internet. The little knowledge I know makes me think of a Gateway as a router. I do not have any router hooked up to my network at the moment.
