I was using a WDTV Live Plus for a few years and it recently up and died on me.
I bought a WDTV Live Hub Media Center to replace it.
Here’s my set up:
Connected to upstairs neighbors wireless internet router via Linksys wireless antenna for internet connection.
Connecting WDTV Live Hub to PC via wired AOpen ethernet hub.
All cables and ports are fine. All green lights on AOpen hub, PC and WDTV Live Hub ethernet port.
Now, this was the same connection I had with the WDTV Live Plus. In order to use both the wireless and wired and have internet access on both the PC and Live Plus I had to create a network bridge. This all worked great until the Live Plus died. I have set up the WDTV Live Hub in the same manner.
I go into WDTV Live Hub Network settings, try auto setup. I get an error that says can’t obtain IP address. So I try manual setup, use the info I get from going to cmd window and ipconfig. Manual setup completes, then I do a check connection. I get a green check mark on the IP address but two red X’s on DNS and Internet Connection and the error Incorrect DNS server address.
The DNS server address I’m using is the one from the internet provider as shown in IPconfig.
When I check the network connections it shows both the wireless and Lan enabled, and the internet works fine on the PC. When I view the status of the Network Bridge it says IPv4 is connected to Internet but IPv6 says no network access. When I click the details button it shows the same IP address Gateway, and DNS addresses as in ipconfig.
Been working on this for hours now and am totally exhaused…
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
