I have a 2TB MBWE that was working, but now I can't connect to it at all.
Prior to this problem it seemed to be working fine, but I did have to keep rebooting it if I tried to copy large amounts of data onto it (15GB) either from my PC, via wireless, or from a USB hard drive connected directly to the MBWE.
The only changes that I have made since it last worked are to change the SSID of my wireless router and to change the workgroup that my PC and Netbook belong to.
The MBWE is using a fixed IP addtess (xxx.xxx.0.99) which is outside the range being used by the DHCP server on my router (xxx.xxx.0.100 to xxx.xxx.0.199).
If I open a web browser and enter the IP address, I get a page with a WD logo, a message saying "The system is starting" and a progress bar. It typically shows somewhere between 2% and 10%, but this never goes up. If I refresh the page, the percentage goes down.
I've tried going to mybookworld \ configuration \ index in a web browser, but I get a page not found error.
I can't see it at all through Windows Explorer.
If I press (or press and hold) the power button, nothing happens. If I press and hold the reset button for 20 seconds, nothing happens. The only thing that has any affect, is pulling out the power lead, but when I plug it back in, I still can't connect.
I'm fairly sure it isn't the network cable (as I've tried 3) and als that it is not the router (as I have tried it plugged in to three different sockets).
Does anyone have any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.
