I’ve had this drive for about 6 months now and I’m getting tired of a small issue I frequently encounter. I mostly use this drive (1TB) for storing backups and movies which I don’t use on a daily basis.
I have it configured for static @ 192.168.1.101 (gateway is 192.168.1.1). My PC is 192.168.1.111 on the same gateway. I have created network mounted hard drives.
What happens is, that sometimes when I click on the drive everything works fine, but other times it says that the drive is unavailable. Is this a know issue? I even bought a new router (Linksys 2000) thinking that it might fix the issue, and it hasn’t.
Also, I disabled the “sleep” function a lont time ago, so that’s not the problem. It’s like it’s random. When it’s unavailable I am unable to ping the drive even though I can still ping the router and I still have internet access threw the same router.
Any help would be great, thanks.
