I bought a USB SATA enclosure for a new 1.5Tb WD drive I just got. I have this hooked up to my Belkin N+ router through the USB storage port. I mapped it as a network drive and all my computers see the drive and are able to write to it.

Here's the problem, I set up Windows backup software to backup files to the drive. So the backup starts and everything is going well but then it will eventually stop and I'll get a message that the computer could no longer connect to the drive. On the little network icon in the bottom right corner of the screen there will be a ! in a triangle over the icon. Then internet will no longer be usable to any of the computers and I will have to go restart it to get it working again. I've tried this on 2 computers and the backups always fail. The routers firmware is up to date.

I'm sure I could just plug the drive into a computer and use it like that but I like the fact that if it's hooked up to the router the computer doesn't have to be on for another computer to use the drive and that I won't ever accidentally format the drive or get a virus on it.

Anything should try?
Thanks
