I have a 500 GB Netcenter, linked to a router (Syslink). This morning, as I switches the harddisk on, the light around the on/off button flashes from blue to red and I have no access to the programs and resources anymore (I think I have downloaded 500 GB full onto it and that is why the harddisk won't work anymore...I did burn away data regullary but could not do that lately).
Can anyone tell me: Did you have the same problem and how did you solve it? Would push the reset-button on the backsite of the harddisk solve it or would I loose all the data by doing that?
So I can not access the data anymore, no matter from what computer I try....

Hardware damage - yes , most likely all the data is lost.
You might have a slim chance of recovering something if you take the actual hard disk out of the WD casing and you connect it directly inside a desktop, if it's still working at a basic level it should appear in My Computer.

If you wanna go wireless and your router is not wireless, you can simply buy a wireless access point. Connect it to your router and it will give you wireless service, hence your laptop can connect wirelessly now. You can just buy a D-link wireless access point.
Same problem for my on my brand new drive. I found a solution on the web that points to reformatting the drive as a fix: http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t-50207/cannot-delete-files-read-only-dev-md4-on-mybook-we-i-1tb
I can't be bothered and am going to try and sell it.
Press the reset button on the back of the router and hold for 10-15 seconds, this resets router to factory defaults. Access the router using the IP address of the router http://192.168.1.1 access the router setup and create your PPPOE internet connection provided by your ISP using your username and password connect to the router via the computer.

I had this same problem. The solution is to unplug it from your UPS and plug it directly into the power outlet. I know this sounds crazy but afte 1.5 hours on the phone with WD tech support I finally got to a top level tech and he said this is a common problem. They just don't work consistantly when plugged into a UPS.
