Does anyone have suggestions as to why my HD TV LIve + keeps losing it’s IP address on my home network? I have it directly attached to my home router over an Ethernet cable, and have been able to get it successfully working on the network such that my Windows 7 home PCs can see it on the network and transfer files to the USB drive attached to the TV Live + unit.
Unfortunately, every so often the TV Live + network share disappears and the Network Check I run on the unit says it has no IP address. Sometimes it can recover it’s IP address if I reboot the router and the TV Live +, but sometimes this doesn’t seem to work and the unit just goes without any network connectivity for long periods of time. Right now, for example, I can’t get the WD TV Live to get an IP address no matter what I try. I’ve even used a paper-clip to reset the TV Live +. I have run the option to have it automatically configure itself on the network but that just fails too.
The home router is clearly working ok since all my Windows 7 PCs access it just fine, and get IP addresses assigned to them via DHCP.
Does anyone have suggestions about something else I should try?
