It's too soon to say with certainty, but I think I've resolved the issue. I replaced my Linksys EA-3500 with an ASUS RT-N66U and I haven't had any issues with losing files since. I will keep a close eye on it to see if I do lose files, and try to remember to update this post if that happens. My guess is that there is some issue with the firmware on the ...
