Question about SimpleTech (STI-USB235/400) 400 GB Hard Drive
I am trying to attach my SimpleShare hard drive to my Negear wireless router (RangeMax model WPN824).
I am not configuring any security on the router and I'm using the simplest setup possible using all of the defaults (DHCP).
While in the Netgear Router Manager page I can see the drive. It is assigned the IP address of 188.8.131.52 and the MAC address of 00:15:58:3a:74:f0.
When I run the SimpleShare Discovery software I get the following message: "NASFinder has detected the listed SimpleShare servers on your local network."
It tells me to "open SimpleShare online Help", but does not tell me how to get there. So... I found you.
