Question about Belkin N1 Vision Router

Trying to connect a Mybook 1Tb network drive to N1 Vision

I'm trying to connect a new 1TB WD Mybook network drive to my network via the router ports on an N1 Vision Router, but although I can see all the other PC's (3) and access the internet ok, I can't find the Mybook on the network. I also can't get Mionet to run, which from what I have read might not be such a bad thing.

I have connected the drive driect to my pc's ethernet port and manged to access it that way, but only from my machine and I want it availble when my machine is shutdown, ie via the router hub.

Hi! I have an N1 Vision with similar problems. I have done some research and found that we are not alone with this issue! Two solutions are possible: 1) If yours is version 1 (1000) of the machine, Belkin recommends that it be swapped out for version 2, which apparently has firmware/hardware changes that fix this (unverified; it would seem to me that this would require a whole new DHCP approach) and 2) I've found that if you go through the process of unplugging the device for 2 minutes, replugging it and then refreshing the DHCP table, after between 1 and 5 iterations, the device should appear. I'd also advise you to shut down (for troubleshooting) the software firewall in the router (you'll still have the NAT firewall), that might eliminate a problem/conflict somewhere in your network!

Good luck and let me know if this helps!

I have a WD MyBook Essential 1TB external hard drive installed with my Mac OSX 10.5.8. The drive is only being used for Time Machine and my iTunes backup. The drive will randomly unmount itself and I get...


I would suspect that either the USB cable or port is the problem. Change the USB port (On the Mac or on the WD MyBook (I don't know if it has more than one USB port) that the cable is connected to and see if that improves the situation, if it still happens change the USB cable. Hope this helps.

My wd 1tb mybook no longer powers up-I have archived versions of these files but i would prefer to get the data off this drive


Is it still under warranty?

Possibilities:
* try connecting to a different USB port on your computer
* try connecting to a USB port on a different computer
* try a different USB cable between the computer and the MyBook
* disassemble the casing, and remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a "slave" drive in some desktop computer, to see if the files on the disk-drive are intact

If all else fails, search online for "professional data recovery service" -- a company that will repair the MyBook just long enough to copy all your files onto a new disk-drive. Of course, this is _expensive_.

Note that Western Digital has a Customer Loyalty Program -- knowing the serial-number on your disk-drive, you can buy a new MyBook from their web-site, at a good discount.

WD Mybook - can't access "Public" folder!


Windows firewall would be local workstation only - is your company deploying a hardware firewall solution. The ports would need to be opened to allow that traffic in. Like on your router you needed to open UDP ports for the mybook to get out. You need to so the same to allow traffic to get to the device.

I'm assuming the device is plugged directly into a router. You should consider on the router creating a DMZ for the worldbook to reside in. Of course you need to understand what that means for your data. If it is not sensitive data than a router DMZ provides enough security, if it is senstive data I would not advise that. Too many evil doers on the internet.

WD mybook 1TB is gone from the network


Have you tried different cables or a different port on your router. Is there any way to get into the Hard Drive by connecting it directly to a PC and checking the network settings or anything..? If not, then you may have to connect it directly to a PC and share it to your other PC's.

WD & Seagate ext HDD not getting connected toBelkins N+ router


hmmm..

Start > Run > devmgmt.msc

Check if there are some errors shown under USB devices..

Also try changing the USB ports...

Use the ports in back of ur CPU.

Also check

Start > run > diskmgmt.msc to see if your device / Hard disk is listed there.

Assign a drive letter to the drive if no letter like e:, f: etc is assigned to it.
