When I first bought MWB I went in and changed the name from mybookworld to monasbigbook.
I have always had intermittant problems connecting to the, but usually a reboot or restarting mionet solved that problem.
While doing some troubleshooting on another pc, I decided to unplug the ethernet cable from the mybook and put it in the system that I was TS.
Since then I have never been able to get back ito MWB.
At first I could not even get to the webpage, but I have found that if I put the ip address in the url, walk away, come back in about 30, the webpage is up.
I have tried to change the name back to myworldbook, I have uninstalled and reinstalled mionet, i can ping it, it even shows up in my network places, but when I try to click on it it tells me I do not have permission to access this.
My now you probably have figured out that I am using microsux, I am certified microsux's engineer, that is what pays for my little toys, which this was spose to be.
Because of a new job, that is running a multi os platform. I am learning linux. I have a laptop that is dual booted with suse 10.1 and vista.
I did manage to get suse up and running and on the network, but had to upgrade vista from basic to ultimate, so that I could connect to the domain at work.
Some how I blew out my suse install, and had to reinstall and can not figure out what I did to get the wireless nic to work.
So now you what my knowledge of linux is.
I am now looking at this as a learning experience and and a way to get my stuff of this thing.
I am trying to do the ssh or the telnet, but when I do the firmware update i get Error Code:: f00013 wd.
It will not let me change the name back to mybookworld, or even create a new share or folder.
I am scared to go any further, with my lack of linux knowledge, because I have over 5 years photos on this thing, and only about 2/3 of it is backed up.
So I have decided to come to the experts.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
