Thanks for the reply Mark. Both units have static addresses that are registered with the DHCP server. This insures that when they ask for a DHCP address (which they still do on occasion. I guess that's the DHCP bug.) they get their reserved static address. That's all good. I'm not using WiRNS, so those requirements are not an issue. I still lose connectivity on both units, though much less frequently than before I set up the static addresses and DHCP reservations....
Greetings - I have 2 Replay 5xxx units networked together. Both have static IPs and reservations on the DHCP server for those addresses. Replay B can always access the Replay Guide on Replay A, but occasionally, Replay A loses access to Replay B and its Replay Guide. According to the monitoring software the sysadmin is running, unit A - while maintaining its static address - requests a DHCP address from the DHCP server at the times I notice the problem.

Mikey - When you say "(xxx) hour drive", I assume you're talking about Standard quality. Could you provide the actual drive sizes as well? Thanks!

There are three left after the one I just purchased. I'll let you all know how it works out.
Great forum, thread and info. Wish I'd found it before I bought the unusable 500 GB WD drive that now sits on my desk. Suggestion: Could we make a first post sticky, with all the winners and losers listed and updated? That would make it easier to see and maintain a summary of which drives to consider and which to avoid. Currently shopping for anything larger than my 40/80GB drives in my 5040/5060 Replays. NewEgg has a Maxtor MaXLine II HDD-5A320J0-NDW-R 320GB on sale for...
