I have a WD MyBook World NAS with the set static ip 192.168.0.102 (subnet mask 255.255.255.0) - it might be also defined that the router ip is 192.168.0.1 but I can't remember. It works great on my home network.
Now I took the device with me somewhere else and want to connect it directly to my MBP (running Mavericks) with ethernet cable. I just can't ping the NAS.
I have tried sharing my internet connection from the wifi to ethernet. Nothing.
I have tried setting the manual ip on the ethernet port in NetworkSettings to 192.168.0.1 (subnet 255.255.255.0). Nothing.
Can anyone please help?
