Bought a MBL 3T and connected to the router via an internet switch. An older Vista laptop sees it fine. An newer XP 64 bit pro computer sees it fine. Both of those are wirelessly connected to the router. But my old XP32 bit computer that is connected by ethernet wire does not see it at all. Won’t discover, can’t find it when entering the IP address directly. It’s just not showing up to it.
Odd part is that all 3 computers see each other and all 3 can transfer files back and forth.
I’ve used both the Vista and the XP64bit machine to grab a file from the XP32 bit machine and upload that file to the MBL. Frankly, I’m confused!
Obviously, there is some networking glitch --> but what and where? Oh, the upnp is checked in the firewall. I’ve tried it with the firewall off too.
Hoping for some of y’all smart folks to point out the obvious to me!
