Cannot see network after changing password.

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.

Have you tried rejoining the domain on the wireless desktop.  It seems like it isn't connecting to the domain, just the network.  Computer/properties/Computer name/ Network ID.

Do you use a VPN to connect to your domain via wireless?
At login, there's no way for Windows to pass authentication  thru wireless, correct?

I logged onto his desktop, using his old password and attempted to change that password to his new domain password.  It would not accept.  It kept telling me that the username or password was incorrect.  They were not incorrect.  However, since posting this question and your advice to attempt to add it to the domain once I was connected wirelessly I thought I would give it a try.  I went to the computer and attempted to log in using his old password - INCORRECT password.  I then used his new password, it let me in and everything works.  I did NOTHING except post a question on Experts Exchange!  Wow - :)  Hontestly, I hate it when this happens - I have no idea what actually fixed the problem.  Thanks for your help!
