Unit reboot for every power down? lost network connection

Just bought a WD TV Live plus due to its component video capability.  But everytime I power down the unit, seems like the unit reboots and loose network connection.  Had to go into setup / network setup / internet connection and redo the network setting everytime.  Do I have to leave the unit on all the time??  Please help!  I do own a WD TV Live streaming media player and it also will loose network share setttings everytime I do a hard powerdown, but for that you have to hold power button for like 30 sec.  I am confused now

Make sure that you have the latest firmware version.
