400X can't see 500X2
« on: October 08, 2011, 07:30:04 am »
I have just got a 400X for upstairs. Trying to connect to 500x2 downstairs but if I go to network they can't see each other. I have changed the network name of one of the boxes and NAS is on. Both have  active wireless connect .Any ideas would be great, winters closing in so watching my media collection form bed is priority number one.

Thanks Dave

Have you set NAS to on in your 500x2 setup?

Hi Mass,

NAS is set to on , on both units. I have re scanned Wifi to make sure both are connected. I have also set static IP's for each unit. One is named Mede8er and the other Mede8erHD. Checked the 400x unit and its actually a 400x2 , i have not updated the firmware on it yet but thought it would work straight out the box. 

Any help would be great

Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave,

I just verified this with my 500X2 and my 400X2.
When NAS is on on my 500X2 (with internal HDD) and in my 400X2 I goto Media Library -> Network -> WORKGROUP:

I see my 500X2 and can browse into it and play media.

I must say: have tested this with both on LAN cable connection, so your issue might be WIFI related.
For troubleshooting purpose, are you able to connect the stuff temporary on lan cable to check if you get it working then?

Are there any other devices on the Network, such as a PC? It's far better to test each  Med is successfully working with a PC first.

We its all sorted now. Ran an upgrade on the 400x2 and its in the work group. Before upgrade though both units could see the laptop but not each other.
