I am probably missing some setting I assume, but I cannot find out what.
Thanks again =)
I have an ASUS RT_N66U; basically the same router as you have. I have a WD Live Plus. After I replaced the old Linksys router with the ASUS, all network devices, including the Live Plus, didn’t even flinch when they were all turned back on. – it all worked as before – just faster and better. If I had this happen, you can, too.
First of all, I’d like to know if the router is your new unit, and/or is the WD player? Or both; neither?
Before installing the new router, I turned off every device connected to the network. After the router was connected and on, I turned on the PC to set it up. Once that was done, I turned on each network device one at a time. Everything that was connected before connected again, correctly; including the Live Plus, and its network shares were all as before. Nothing had changed – other than the router.
You also mentioned having issues with the WD network shares and passwords. I replied to someone else recently with this issue, and this is what I told him:
Re: No password or PC how do I set up?
I have gotten the same responses from the WDTV, even though my shares are set up for Everyone. No matter, there is a way to completely bypass this stuff.
in the WDTV settings, select auto logon
in the Windows Advanced sharing, select it to not require password protected sharing.
End of problem.
The person wrote back that he was now all setup by using this info.
See if it works for you.
