I have downloaded the new 1.02.12 firmware, and successfully updated my WD MyBook WorldEdition 2TB manually. But the unit still drops of the network after 4 minutes. I am in an all-Windows 7 environment with a NetGear DHCP router. I have tried to put a static IP address, and it works for about 4 minutes also, then the unit disappears. I have to do the Reset thing from the back.
[Added Info]: I don’t think my NIC is dead because it accepts static IP and accepts DHCP IP; It just won’t hold on to it for more than 3-4 minutes.
Help, please, because I have been waiting for this firmware update for 4 weeks and I only updated it from the previous 1.02.10 after reading the thread for the new one and making sure there were no new complaints.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
