HI,

 

MY USB DRIVES RANDOMLY SEEM TO DISCONNECT. WHEN I GO THE THE APP THE DRIVES CONNOT BE FOUND. ONE IS SET UP FOR TIME MACHINE. 

 

Sorry about the caps.

To reaquire the drive I must go to the router and unplug each drive and plug it back in. Once I do that all seems fine for a while then they disappear agaid. The I am back to unpluggng and replugging in.

 

Reboot of the tp-link app does noth.

 

Advice please.

 

Jack

One thing that may be happening is that the drives are overloading the router. The router can supply only so much power to the USB drives. You may need a powered hub. Try using only one drive at a time and see if that makes a difference.
