MyCloud EX2 Ultra disconnects

Every couple of days my My Cloud Ex2 loses its connection.
Typically when active the power light slowly blinks on and off due to it being in power saving mode.
When I lose access to it, the power light is steady blue.

Sometimes I can still access it via the computer with my mapped network drive, but the access is extremely slow. Copying files instead of 70-100 only goes at 2 and under.

Unplugging it and plugging it back in only solves the problem, temporarily as a day or 2 later it still drops. .
I want to know how to stop it from happening in the first place.
Having a Network drive that is not accessible through the network is worthless.

I tried doing the 4 second reset by pressing the reset button with a paper clip, I pushed on it multiple times for anywhere from 5-10 seconds and it did not re-boot. The only way I can re-gain access to it is if I unplug it. The front contains 3 solid blue lights, typically when it is working the top power indicator slowly blinks
