The HP MediaSmart EX495 Experience with Lou Jacob

Follow along as a newcomer experiences the HP MediaSmart EX495 and Windows Home Server for the very first time, documenting his experience setting up and integrating it into his life.

Setting Up My MediaSmart EX495 (part 2 of 2)

To recap my experience from Part 1, I had some difficulties getting rid of the NETWORK CRITICAL message once I'd gotten my MediaSmart booted up and on the network.  Turned out to be relatively easy to deal with once I'd figured out the correct order to do things in, but it was not intuitive.  Hopefully, the previous article was helpful.

Picking up where I left off...

Once my red, NETWORK CRITICAL messages finally went away, I still received a couple of warnings (the first related to the lack of antivirus software, which I immediately installed, but had not quite figured out how to activate, and the second related to not having web services enabled).
