I have a server running Windows Server 2000, 6 workstations all running XP Pro over hard wired ethernet, and a laptop also running XP pro on a Wireless 802.11b connection. All of the network equipment is Linksys, 11 mbps wireless, 10/100 wired. There are 12 user accounts, and all users use all of the different workstations, hence roaming profiles. All users login fine on the desktops, but every now and then they cannot login to the laptop, because it cannot find the user profile.
I don't believe this is because there is no internet connection, as you can login fine with some accounts, but not others. Usually, the problem logging into the laptop over 802.11b happens with select users, mostly after they have just logged off of a desktop workstation. It seems like the profile begins to login fine.. then hangs... then says it cant locat the copy of the profle. Is it timing out? Is it a problem copying the profile back to the server?
Anyone who can help, I really really really appreciate it.
