The Home Media Network Hard Drive is specifically designed to operate cool, thanks to an efficient fan that also adjusts its rotational speed automatically for quiet operation. The drive has a burnished gun metal exterior and a small footprint, making it aesthetically pleasing out in the open, yet small enough to be easily stowed away. Because the Home Media Network Drive is always turned on to serve up content, the product's power supply is Energy Star® compliant for power conservation and a better environment.
Fast network performance is achieved through a Gigabit Ethernet connection that plugs directly into a router. The Home Media Network Hard Drive also boasts a fast processor so users can save and access large media files quickly, as well as a USB port to add a shared network printer for multiple computers, or an external USB drive for incremental storage capacity.
My Home Media Network Hard Drive has suddenly stopped connecting to my network. The drive appears to be working, showing a single white light, and I can hear disk activity which sounds normal. However, it does not show up on the list of devices connected to my router on the router's own diagnostic page, so obviously isn't visible from any computers - it doesn't seem to be getting a lease or IP address from the router. It was working fine up until a day or so ago, and I can't think of anything which has changed.
