I have just bought an Iomega Strocenter iX2 but cannot get it to work. I get two white lights on the front panel to show up permanently and from time to time a blue light. The set up software just says...
The IX2 doesn't have white indicator lights. The IX2-200 does which would mean that the device is healthy and ready for use.
Since you are directly connecting it to your imac via ethernet cable which is the only way to connect to the device as the USB's are hubs.
First make sure you computer is getting an APIPA address 169.254.x.x (x represents randomly generated numbers by the computer), do a factory reset (depressing the reset button on the back for 4-5 seconds) which should restart the device, open a Terminal window (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal) and type (without the quote marks) findsmb and hit enter. You should see your device populated on that list and you should also see an IP address associated with the device. Open an internet browser window and type the devices IP address into the address bar without the "http://" in front. You should have access to the device now.
At this point you will want to statically (manually) setup an IP for your device with your networks subnet. Once you statically set the IP. Disconnect it from your computer and put it on the network.
