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.

I do have a MBWE but have been using the explorer and not Mionet, so just a suggestion:
1. I would uninstall Mionet completely, restart the pc and then reinstall Mionet.
2. I would also try assigning a static IP for the MBWE; this can be set through your router's setup page;
If you're following anyone of these two and want to post response please do so, and good luck !!!

SOURCE: Flashing blue rings
The alternating flashing between the inner and outer blue rings means the drive is currently in Raid Degraded mode per KB article 1480. You will need to have your drive serviced. If you are able to access the device's Shared Storage Manager you should find a Drive Status: Drive (A or B) failed. If you can access it, you might be able to re-create the raid by replacing the bad drive (they're labeled A and B internally with a sticker so you'll know which one to replace) -- it's generally recommended that you first go through the warranty process though:
KB Article 915 and KB Article 8 will start you on the RMA process.

I am having the same problem, but I have a solution. I don't know if its a permanent solution though. You have to setset mionet though the drive. Enter your drives ip address into your web browser and go to the mionet section. One option is to reset mionet. That has worked for me so far, but its useless if your not on your home network.

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
