Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
Very few external disk-drives _have_ an IP-address (the Apple Time-Machine is the exception). For those drives that do,
they obtain their IP-address automatically, by sending a 'request' out through their network-connection. A DHCP ('Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol') server on the network sends an IP-address to it. Most 'home' routers (wired or wireless) include the DHCP-server functionality.
So, the only way to change the IP-address is to configure the DHCP-server to always assign the desired IP-address whenever that specific device sends a 'request' for an IP-address.
