I feel I’m at the end of my tether with my 2tb MyBook Live. I have it hooked up to a WD MyNet750 (which ought to be a decent combination…). It serves my WDTV Live and Sonos along with all the computers in the house.
The link with the MyBook is incredibly unreliable. It will be accessible for around an hour or 2 after a power cycle and then become unaccessible after. I can remove the ethernet cable and replug but to no avail. It requires a power cycle to “come back to life”. As such, the cloud storage is essentially useless as I need to be in the house to restart the MyBook.
I have tried everything I can think of to try and get some stability. It is on the latest firmware. As a side note, updating firmware takes many hours. It seems to get stuck on the rebooting phase for a long long time. Anyhow, it eventually confirms that the firmware has been updated. It has not been reliable on former firmware either.
Any tips and tricks to get this horrible thing working as it is supposed to?
