Re: NAS connection drops after few minutes
I have the same problem with the network connection dropping. Not just with copying large files (> 8G), but also with copying a large number of files.
And no, that is not the same thing.
I am running release 5440,so if it was fixed in 4824 it appears to be broken again.
It happens both copying across the file system, as through FTP.
I tried both DHCP and fixed address, same result.
It appears that my POHD forgets about its networking obligations when its under stress. The most annoying part is that the only way to kick it back in/on line is by bouncing the whole damn box.
I am using one of those powerline network adapters to connect the POHD to the router. I am willing to take that into consideration, but remember its the POHD I have to bounce, not the adapter. Anyway, last week they installed my fiberglass modem (maybe some time in the next three months they'll hook it up too), so that's a great excuse to pull some wires to the tv area and rule out the adapters once and for all.
In the mean time, it would be great if a network(adapter) reset would become available in a future release. Better yet, if the damn thing would occasionally verify it is still listening to the rest of the world, and take appropriate action on its own, that would be even better.
