I had exactly the same issue after removing the MioNet software. My device is connected to a router that assigns IP addresses (DHCP) and can easily be accessed using explorer and by mapping the drive so that its available on startup.
The solution I found is as follows.
The unit has a default reset button that will reset the unit User Name to "admin" and the Password to "123456" Without the quotation marks.
The button is recessed in a small hole between the power connector and the network connector on the back of the unit. Its much the same as the small hole on a CD/DVD Drive used to remove discs from a PC that is switched off. You will need a paper clip or similar to reset the device.
Step 1. Switch off the unit and remove all leads.
Step 2. Insert the paper clip into the small hole mentioned above and press (not to hard though)
Step 3. With the clip still in the hole, connect the power lead and switch the unit on.
Step 4. Wait until the circular power button lights up ( this can take anything up to a couple of minutes). Once lit count to 10 and remove the clip.
Step 5. Re-connect the network cable and return to your PC.
Step 6. In your browser type in "wdstorage" No quotation marks.
Step 7. This will open the shared storage manager page. select your option and when it prompts for username enter "admin" and for password enter 123456
Once done you can change usernames and passwords as required.

The Failed Mount issue is usually caused by Internet Security settings. The most common way to resolve it is to add the following files/ports to the exceptions list of your firewall(s) -- in some cases you will need to add it to the Windows Firewall, even if you have another Firewall installed as well:
MioNet.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\jvm\bin\MioNet.exe)
MioNetManager.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\MioNetManager.exe)
ServiceStatusGui.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\ServiceStatusGui.exe)
These ports are also required for MioNet to create a drive-letter for remote drives:
TCP In/Out 443
TCP In/Out 445

It sounds like either the NAS enclosure or the drive(s) inside have failed.
If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact www.westerndigital.com for a warranty replacement.
If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive(s) into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.
If the new enclosure fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.
Hope this helps FixYa,
