Windows 7: Windows 7 loses contact with my two NAS'es very often

Windows 7 loses contact with my two NAS'es very often

Recently I bought a Windows 7 pc. After years with XP and Vista - and NAS'es Qnap TS-109 and Maxtor Shared Storage Plus - I am suddenly very unsatisfied Once every day (or moere) my pc loses contact with the NAS'es. Only way to get connected again is to cut power since restart is not possible (it just hangs). So it works alright for a few hours - and then no connection quite suddenly.

So now I have detached the NAS'es and the problem is gone. But so is the NAS connections of course...

Is there a general Windows 7 problem in regard to NAS'es...? Anyone who knows? If so I must downgrade to Vista or XP...

Try giving your NAS a static IP. Make sure it is not conflicting with any other device.
