Disconnect/Connect while browsing Vista

My WD TV Live is on a wired connection to my router. My files are shared from an “always on” computer (Win7) also wired to the same router. No issues there. Everything works fine. It never looses connection when playing any files.

My issue is that while browsing through my network share/library or when stopping a movie file, my Vista Laptop (Wireless to the same router) looses sight of the WDTV Live for just a second and I get an annoying disconnect/connect sound from my laptop. I haven’t got a clue why this is happening. The Win7 computer also looses sight of the WDTV for a second, but no annoying disconnect/connect sound.

I have both the Laptop and the WDTV set to their own DHCP reservation.

Any help would be appreciated. Thx.

Check if setting a static IP helps.
