Howdy,

I'm trying to wrangle a network drive into a little network at home.

It's a LaCie Internet Space. I have it hooked up via ethernet to our router. There are 2 computers (Macintosh) and a printer hooked up to the router as well.

The disk spins up fine, and the connection to the router looks OK (light at connection is on). The problem is that the software used to set up the disk (HipServ) does not find the router. I've fiddled with firewall settings and UPnP on the router, but still no luck.

Anyone have any clues or tips?

Thanks!

P.S. No help from their "support forum", where you have to register and confirm via email before you post - didn't ever get an email from them! The lack of posts there makes me think it their modus operandi...

Try it on a windows computer? It might just be bad support for macs.

Have you tried setting the parameters on the router manually? Have you looked at the troubleshooting section of the manual?

Regards, Andrew
