Windows 7 syncronization with share stops

Posted on 2011-05-04
Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I have a small per-to-peer network with one Windows XP SP3 pc which shares a folder with four other pc's locally connected.
This folder is approx. 10 GB.
The network is wireless and I am using a Zyxel Zywall 20W as AP.

I have one brand new Windows 7 Pro PC where I have connected this share as a drive.
I configured this as "always available offline".
I try to start the initial syncronization manually but after a few minutes it stops saying something like
"The given network name is no longer available" (translated from Danish)
I can confirm that the share is still available for normal browsing from this pc.

Can anyone give me a clue?

    it sounds more of an issue with your wireless such us that it goes to standby etc. You can always give static IP addresses to all pcs and map the shared folder by ip which i find the most reliable way to do it. use your zyxel as your dns.

    All shares is mapped with static IP's.

    It seems like it is an issue only with shares on the XP.
    I have another share on a Zyxel NAS which sync ok.
