    Hello Carl:

    At this point, I too am out of ideas. Maybe a refund from Western
    Digital to be used on another similar product is in order.

    Was this unit ever replaced in-warranty. Sorry if you told us before.

    Re: Problems with a WD 1TB Network drive

    Yes, but not from WD from NewEgg as the it was in the first 30 days. Now any
    type of replacement must be made from WD. I have my uncle and my nephew
    sniffing it out to see if they can come up with anything. My uncle told me
    my nephew is a network expert as has set up many around town for residences
    and business. The only draw back is that they won't be here for a couple of
    weeks. It worked on my brothers network with his D-Link router. I know at
    this point before I shell out $80. (that is what the cost of the router my
    brother has) I know I would want to hook it up on my network first. Will
    post any further findings here.

    Again thanks for you help and everyone else that has contributed!!!

    Hello Carl:

    Would you and your brother like to make a permanent exchange routers?

    Re: Problems with a WD 1TB Network drive

    My cousin who is very network savvy came over to take a gander at all this
    mess and couldn't find anything wrong. He said it is probably that 1 in a
    million chance the the NAS and router just don't like each other. I did ask
    him about adding another network card to the computer itself so I could hook
    the NAS up directly. When I hooked the NAS up directly to the NIC card it
    never lost the connection. So with that said I guess I am going to try and
    get a network card today and see what happens.

    Anybody reccommend a particular NIC? I am a little hesitant about buying a
    Linksys card since I had a problem with the router.

    Re: Problems with a WD 1TB Network drive

    I picked up an NIC today and have it installed (with a static IP). The NAS
    works like a champ and has been online with my deskstop for over 12 hours.

    Now mt next question(s) is it possible to be able to set this up so my
    entire network can see and have access to the NAS?
