NetBEUI & wireless access problems
Posted on 2003-12-02
I'm running a small LAN; server cabled to switch, cabled to Netgear WAP (WG602 v2), connecting to a TrendNet (TEW-226PC) card in my laptop. The laptop has connected to the server frequently in the past without problems. Now that I'm going over 802.llb, I'm finding I can't access some of the directories on the server. The exact message is "The specified network name is no longer available". This happens on a few (seemingly random) directories. I have two laptops with the same type of card in them, neither can see those directories, even after a cold boot. Which directories can't be seen seems to change when the server reboots. I can see directories when I'm on the cable, from other systems on the cable, and on the server itself. The volume is shared using NetBIOS over NetBEUI; I have no problems connecting, authenticating, connecting to the Internet, or browsing the server in any other way.
I hope I've included enough details; sorry it's kind of run together.
