WD My Book Live Causing Wireless to Cut Out

I recently bought a 1TB My Book Live Wireless External Hard Drive to work with my MacBook Pro. Whenever I try to save files (Word or Excel documents) directly to the drive, my whole wireless connection will cut out, the server disconnects, and I have to wait approx. 30 seconds before the internet is back up. I then have to connect to the server again. This is getting very frustrating and less than efficient as I would ideally like to save all files to the hard drive instead of my MBP.

Any ideas?

You bought what?

There’s no such thing as a “1TB My Book Live Wireless External Hard Drive”
