Appreciate the tech depth of most posts on the forum…I can only hope I will be able to contribute myself one day. But…for the time being I have an entry level issue:
I plugged in my new mbwe to my router, installed the mionet software on my desktop XP, and everything is hunky dorey….I can put as much files on the drive as I want. Engouraged by my success, I add my laptop (Vista) to my network, by installing the mionet software. So far so good…I can see all the folders, and mionet sw works well, I can even access my desktop with my laptop. BUT…I cant access the folder content on the mbwe. I get an error message saying "the directory name is invalid".
Also, I cant access the management pages via browser. It just hangs with waiting for xxx.xx.xx.xx. (IP address).
All the folders I have created are shared, and full access to everyone. There is a large number of files/folders in them, but I dont have any problem with these folders from my desktop.
I have searched for any incompatibility issues from WD and looked for anything basic that I might have not done, or not done correctly. The workgroups for mbwe and laptop are called the same…
Please, pretty please…someone have any ideas?
