I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. My SMP disconnects from my wired home network daily. It happens at different times of the day and will not reconnect by force (choosing network connections etc. in the setup tab). It will reconnect at random times on its own.
Here is what I have tried so far:
Restarting the SMP
Unplugging the SMP
Went from a Linksys router to an Actiontec router (still the exact same disconnects)
Leaving the SMP on at all times
Soft shut down of the SMP when not in use
Hard shut down of SMP when not in use (holding off button for 5 seconds)
Changed cat5 cable out
When I try to re-establish connection via wired it says it can’t obtain network connectivity, but when I try to connect wirelessly it goes through without a problem. I would leave it on wireless but my computers do not have wireless capability. At random times during the day the SMP will reconnect on its own for anywhere from a few minutes to several hours before again disconnecting.
I don’t use the SMP for streaming very often but I do use the connectivity to transfer my files that I’ve converted to .mvk from my computer to the USB attached storage drives connected to the SMP.
My setup is the following:
WD Live SMP firmware 1.07
3 WD MyBook Essential 3 TB External Drives
Actiontec GT704WB Router connected via cat5e cable (previously Linksys BEFSR41 v.4 Router)
Belkin powered USB Hub
Optical Audio out to Receiver
HDMI out to TV
2 Win 7 Computers on the same wired network
Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated…
This problem has developed in the last month or so.
