MyBook Live loses network connection

I have a 2TB MyBook Live which will only stay connected to my wireless network for about 30 minutes at a time.

Originally I suspected my wireless router might be to blame, since it seemed to be having other difficulties.

Today I replaced my 10-year old Linksys router with a totally up-to-date Asus gigbit dual-band Black Night - still having the same problem.

The only way I can get it to reconnect is to powerccyle the unit, which works perfectly, every time.

I’m hoping there is a setting on my router or on the drive that can help keep the connection alive - the consistent 30 minute drop-off makes me think there is a sleep setting or something, however I have had it disappear in the middle of file transfers so I have my doubts.

I’ll bet this is a common problem, but I have not been able to find the solution online.

Thanks for any input!

Try using a static IP for the My Book Live.
