Well my device was working great until the last week, when I could no longer access it via the desktop software, no ip address access, absolutely no control over my iomega store center. I checked online and one of the tips was to reset the device to be able to regain desktop access over the device.

The documents I went through advised to keep pressing the reset button at the back of the device until the red lamp at front lights up, however nothing happens when I do so although the red lamp does light up, yet the security preferences are still the same and I still can not get access via any of my PC's or mac's.

Do u have any ideas how can I re-access the network hard drive.

Please note, that the desktop interface positively recognizes the iomega's IP, however I can not access it when I click on the shares button I receive a message that the iomega is not available. When i try to re-add the device using the mentioned IP address, I receive a message that the required IP is inaccessible since it is located on a different subnet and it is not routable??? Any suggestions

That means your ix2 and your PC are on different subnets. The ix2 has a default ip of 192.168.X.X and your PC obviously has an ip from a different subnet, like 172.16.X.X. On windows, you can assign a second ip to your network adapter from the 172.16.net. That should make the ix2 accessible again.

But the iomega's desktop software has and IP which is within my IP range and even from the cmd screen the IP pinges positively; so how can it be on a different subnet.

Well the problem still persists, it seems that I have a corrupt firmware or something.
