Re: Static IP

Not sure what you're trying to achieve here, the harddrive will always be available at \\192.168.1.254 in windows explorer.

you can map a network drive to that if required.

Re: Static IP

Which router do you have? I assume you have plugged the drive into the USB port, which has limitations. You may be better with a decent NAS connected to an Ethernet port.

Re: Static IP

when I asked what you wanted to achieve was it was whether you wanted to access it externally.
you won't be able to do that with the hub one. internally it's always accessible on 192.168.1.254

What about a NAS.
