Good evening,
I have a strange map drive issue. The map drive (y:) will work for a little while, then it will just say (Disconnected Network Drive) under my computer. When you try to reconnect it you get this error "An error occurred while reconnecting Y: to \\Server\X Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored". When you get the error I have other map drives that still continue to work on this workstation, and other computers are mapped to the Y drive. No firewalls are on, but when this the map drive disconnects you cannot ping the server from this workstation. But the server can ping this workstation. The computer is part of the domain and everything else works fine. Any help would be awesome. Thank you

I had a problem that could be similar.  I reinstalled the wireless and LAN drivers after noticing eventvwr.exe showed trouble with holding my connection.  Good luck.
