I have been using a MBWE 2 for probably 4 years now and never had an issue with it, however yesterday I realised it wasn’t on the network, I turned it off and on, swapped the Ethernet cable and rebooted the Router, and still nothing.
I have checked the Router and it hasnt allocated it an IP address, I dont think that the Router is at fault as it has given IP addresses to several other Laptops, Phones etc around the house. Normally I can see the IP address that the Router allocates in the DHCP settings.
I am assuming that something has broken inside, maybe the NIC or something. The drive is on and spinning as normal.
Does anyone have any suggestions? By the way the drive is full of data so really don’t want to lose it,
