I have an Airport Extreme 7.6.4 running Airport Utility 6.3.2.
USB Hub (USB 3.0) attached directly to Airport Extreme (powered).
Canon Pro 9000 MarkII attached to HUB.
RAID enclosure attached to HUB (NAS).
OSX Mavericks with the latest updates.
I noticed the issue starting about 6 months ago (give or take) where either or both the print and NAS will no longer be detected by my Mac. I notice this more with the NAS as I use that more frequently but it also fails on the printer. I was using this setup for about 1 1/2 years without any problems so I know the setup is functionally correct (Apple approved - perhaps not).
I resolve the issue when it occurs by restarting the Airport Extreme (via the Airport Utility) - a process my family doesn't appreciate. Once reset, everything is back to normal. I have found nothing from Google on this.
Needless to say, this is becoming a less than optimal experience and I was hoping this was an issue in the firmware (probably in the name of energy efficiency - but I'm mearily speculating at this point).
I'm to the point where I'm going to purchase another router but I thought I would hit the forums first. Is anyone else experiencing this.
