MyBookWorld goes offline on 1 of 3 computers

Hi Experts,

I have a network drive, MyBookWorld by Western Digital, which is connected to my router, and to which I have 3 computers connected as well as my modem.

On one of these 3 computers I get a message that MyBookWorld is offline and some files will get synchronized as soon as it is back online. As well, I am able to navigate to it with \\mybookworld, but I see only part of my files which I think it is from my temporary files folder. I am also able to ping the drive from all 3 computers.

On the other 2 computers, I can see all my files and I get no message like the above.

Lastly, when I ping Google.com from the problematic computer with the wired connection it takes longer then when I ping from another computer with a wireless connection. Can it be my network card dying or is it a settings?

And FYI, when you are not in synch with the device, seeing part of e files are normal.....
