I'm not sure if its the same for the 1TB but for the 2TB, during the setup of the dashboard I was asked to input a username and password so that I could connect to the drive. Also a name for the device.
Perhaps you should try uninstalling the dashboard and follow the dashboard instructions again.

Thanks for the suggestion, TheAlterator, but I have tried that several times.
As I said in my first (and I do realise it was rather long) post, Dashboard fails every time to find the GoFlex. First I get a screen saying "Searching for GoFlex Home" and then another saying "Cannot find GoFlex Home".
I should perhaps have also said, if it is not obvious, that I have been unable to assign a driver letter to it yet. Whichever of the many routes one might take to do this, I hit the same problem that having navigated through the network hierarchy to select the device I am asked for the not-yet-assigned user name and password.
Is there maybe a default user name and password?

UPDATE: In addition to Chrome and IE, I have now accessed the GoFlex server via both Opera and Firefox. In each case when trying to register a name I get the same error message as I do with Chrome:

I have the same problem, could you give me the solution process?
I'm Italian and I'm not very able to write in English, sorry if I was not polite.

Go to the harddrive URL (192.168.1.x) and in the 'setup' there is an option to update the firmware.
Andare all'URL di harddrive (192.168.1.x) e nell' "setup" c'è un'opzione per aggiornare i microprogrammi (firmware).

thanks for your help, but i didn't find the "setup option" in the device page. I typed 192.168.2.2 and the system has redirected me in http://192.168.2.2/admin/wizards/setup/wrapper. In this page I can insert the Goflex home name and there isn't a setup button or something like that, even on the next page!
If you have other suggestion I very need it! [Edited: Removed personal information per the community rules and regulations.]

I also don't have any 'setup' option. I managed to get the device setup, login etc done through ie, (dashboard just hangs at 'detecting devices'). When I enter the user name and password at login, the screen gets a kind of timer, then 2 error screens with errors codes (in order) as per the attached file.
HELP!. this is now 5 days since buying the device. So much (so far) for installs in minutes.
I have a case No with seagate of 01590650 still unresolved
