      Maybe your brother's computer is configured to not
      autoconfigure it's TCP/IP settings and therefor you
      are on a different network than the Linkstation? (try
      pinging the linkstation). Probably the Buffalo
      software runs out of the broadcast IP address (like
      dhcp) so it cuts through it all anyway.
