In addition, if you know the IP Address of the WD NAS, try pinging the IP from your computer.
If you don't know the IP Address, download and install AdvancedIPScanner. Open up this free utility and it will scan all the devices in your network with its IP Address and Mac Addresses.

You may also try another computer if you browse the URL (IP address) of the WD NAS.

We'll appreciate an update.
