I have an Iomega StorCenter ix2-200d, but I think this question would apply to the Iomega StorCenter products in general as I am at the very begining of the setup process.
The configuration consists of various clients connected to a Mac AirPort Extreme using DHCP. I have tried the setup of the StorCenter from both Windows XP and Mac OS clients without success.
With the StorCenter plugged into my router . . .
Running the "Setup Tool" opens a web browser that goes to
http://localhost:8888/ After clicking through the few wizard screens that tell you to plug in the network cable, power cord, and finally attempts to detect the device, I receive the following error message:
"Sorry. Please confirm that all cables have been properly connected, your router is working properly, and the Iomega StorCenter device has been turned on before clicking Next again. Click the Retry button to try again. Click the Back button to start the install again."
I have also tried setting the device up with an Ethernet cable connected directly to a computer. In all attempts, I used the included network cable as well as two others, rebooted everything, and retried all steps. I also reset the settings on the router and reconfigured it. I am wondering if this is something related to DHCP settings on the router?
Thanks for the help!
