I have a WD World Edition White Lights NAS. I had issues where I could not access the admin page it just timed out. After reading many forums still no luck so I tried a (soft) reset i.e. pushed the reset button on the back. I have tried a (hard) reset i.e. pushed the reset button for 40 seconds while starting. Nothing seems to work. So I have gone from one problem to two. The NAS is now not visible on the network, WD Discovery can't see it and it's not showing in my routers DHCP Client List.
I have another identical NAS which is working 100% WD Discovery picks it up etc.
Any suggestions for this issue are greatly appreciated. At the moment all I have is a pretty white brick. I really really need access to my data.
