Follow the instructions: https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/a ... px?ID=5411
It works, I used to use it for many years, I stopped using WDTV last December.
Highly recommended to have WDTV connect using a wire. Wireless works, but discovery of the shares is slow and inconsistent. Much better experience when WDTV is wired to the network.
