Cannot see network after changing password.
Posted on 2008-10-07
I have a Windows 2000 computer that sees the network using a wireless nic. When I first set this comptuer up, it was wired using an ethernet connection. After I moved it from a wired connection to a wireless connection you could still access all mapped network drives. Since then, the user that logs on to this computer changed his domain user password on his wired desktop. When he logs onto the wireless desktop he has to use his old password (which I understand why). Once Windows is up and a wireless connection is made (we can see the Internet and ping our servers) he cannot go to the mapped drives. It will ask him for his user password - at this time, neither the old password or the new password will work. The only way I can resolve this is to plug it back up to ethernet, login using the new password and it will remember (cache) the settings/passwords. Is there a way around this? Thank you.
