1. Make sure the router is at about 20 feet or less.
2. The router has the latest firmware and with all defaults save the SSID, WPA2 and password.
3. Check with WD for software and updates.
If still drops, be sure to test wired.
Ok i just wish to say thanks in advance for anyone taking the time to help me with my issue.
Firstly my gear
newish amd running windows 7 over home wifi 8 gigs of ram
linksys xac 1200 router
wd my cloud storage
minix neo x7 media center on the television.
The problem is the pc drops from the network (wifi) while transferring files to the wd cloud. This happens every time i try and transfer files. The minix box runs Netflix and streams without interruption, other devices like tablets and phones stay connected with out interruption but i cant transfer files to the cloud! I like my photography and the files i am transferring to the cloud are Nikon raw files and jpegs. If i do them one at at time i have no problem but a folder full and i have issues. I have had the problem now for about 2 years and despite my best efforts i just cant solve it and it driving me nuts. I have also tried transferring using to a usb memory device from pc but this also drops/hangs during the attempted transfer before the file has completed transferring. It happens with all file types. Any help would be greatly appreciated...
