comment Router dropping connections
How many IP addresses can this router provide as configured? Some routers have a low default range. Also possible as @ Frank Thomas notes,that the hardware cannot handle the traffic created by the connected devices. You may need to add a second access point or offload traffic to a wired connection(s)

comment Does putting virtual machines in separate partition affect performance?
Unless the VM is on a different channel, the performance of the VM will be poor. A second HD would be best ideally on a SATA 6Gb/s channel. Failing that, put the VM on a USB 3.0 drive. Partitioning should not improve the VM performance.

comment Diagnose : Maximum+number+of+open+connections+reached
Open connections are common. Use a lookup tool to see what the IPs are.

@JakeGould I appreciate your feedback. However, my experience was different and repeated trips of the same drive to the freezer gave repeated access to data while cold. This happened in several cases. Left alone-No data. Freezer- Data recovered. Data Recovery people say do not do it as noted in the linked info but they do have a vested interest in sending to them. I do not claim it works all the time or often, Simply that it ahs worked. Data Recovery firms do work more often but at a significant cost which is often worth that cost.
