Windows XP intermittant connectivity
- Just bought a HD-H160LAN a couple days ago. It is running firmware
1.47. My connections keep dropping regards of whether I am trying to
access it via a UNC or a mapped driver. I've tried UNC's and IP's in
I'll be running the ntbackup utility from the command line using the
various ways of accessing the share described above. I also have a
"folder" open the share so I can watch the backup file grow. The
backup begins and file starts to grow but then all of a sudden and
that window disappears/closes and the backup failes. I can ping the
linkstation at that point but cannot hit the www server via a browser
or telnet. If I wait a few minutes I can connect again. Tech support
was no help: only suggesting using IP access instead of netbios.
I really like this box (other than dropping connections) and don't
want to return it but dropping connections is not acceptable.
Any suggestions? I've tried turning off my firewall
