Hi guys, I have the 1tb mybook and I dont use minoet at all, I just use it to connect to the disk but I have it mapped directly in windows and thats how I use it in my house. for a while everything has been going fine, that is until I tried to go into the website shared folder utility (where you type http://mybookworld into the website) you are supposed to enter the disc and manage shared folders and settings and such.
Well, that just stoped working, i've tried everything from going into the router and checking the IP and entering the Ip directly to even changing the whole pool of ip adresses in my house, reseting the mybookworld, you name it. the IP is supposed to be "172.16.1.36" but if I put that in the browser, it treats it as a google search, when I can type my wifi printers adress and I enter the utility or the linksys accesspoints ip adress and I enter that utility or just type "home" and enter my routers utility, it's only the HD's utility that doesnt seem to want to work. I havent tried connecting to the HD riectly from my pc, I wouldnt even know where to start if I do that, the one time I tried it all I could see was windows telling me it couldnt connect to a network.
The HD works fine, all the files in it are fine and I can easily access it thru mionet or directly thru windows but it's as if the shared utility has dissapeared.
I know that you are supposed to type http://"nameofthehd" I already tried that as well, it's http://backupmauricio and it isnt working as well.
Any ideas? Thanks.. I hope you can help
