If MioNet says the drive is offline, the drive either:
1. Does not have Internet access, but has local network access
2. Needs to be re-attached to the MioNet account
3. Needs a firmware update
To check if the device has Internet access you can attempt to do a firmware update. If it does not detect new firmware, the device cannot access the Internet.
To re-attach the My Book World to your MioNet account:
A. Login to the Shared Storage Manager
B. Go to the General Setup tab. Login with your MioNet username and Password (if you change your MioNet password, use your old password)
C. Click the WD Anywhere Access Settings link
D. Select Stop, then select Reset
E. Go to MioNet Manage (double-click the MioNet icon in the tray), then go to File > Scan for Cameras and New Devices
F. Give your My Book World a new name (alternatively you can remove the drive before scanning for cameras and new devices)
If your firmware is lower than 02.00.19, you can perform a firmware update. First you must set the Security settings for each folder under File Sharing to None, then set the WD Anywhere Access settings to Off. The firmware update page is under the General Setup tab.
