Thanks for sharing with me what you did to get things to work. Unfortunately switching to a direct wired Ethernet connection was one of the first things I tried and that did not resolve the issue. However, since USB is specified as a fallback, I best look into changing the USB suspend setting. When the problem occurred after switching to Ethernet, it did fail over to trying to connect via USB.
I have a post on ap-gto and will be working with Howard to get to the bottom of this issue. As Ray pointed out to me on the ap-ug there are timeouts for both Ethernet and (fallback) USB connections. While I’ve increased both of those I need to test further to determine if that resolves the problem entirely.
Again, thanks for responding and sharing your experience. It is a helpful to have another data point.
Going forward, I’ll work through the Yahoo user’s group ap-gto for getting support on this issue.
Anyone seeing this thread that wants to follow this issue, look for the following post on the ap-gto group:
