windows 7 laptop can't access sbs 2003 shares when wireless, ok on wired
Posted on 2012-03-14
I have a win 7 pro laptop that is part of a domain with a single sbs 2003 standard server.
when in the docking station / wired LAN connection, the laptop can access the shares, and has a mapped drive s: maps to \\server\share
when out of the docking station, we can ping the server by name and ip (and the wired and wireless IPs for the laptop are on the same subnet as the server (192.168.1.x)
but in windows explorer we can't browse to \\server and when we click on the network drive, we get:
windows cannot access \\192.168.1.5
check the spelling o fthe name. otherwisethere might be a problem with your network....
error code 0x80004005
restoring network connections
an error occurred while reconnecting s: to \\server\share
microsoft windows network: the network location cannot be reached
this connection has not been restored
we get these messages even if rebooting out of the dock , so it only gets the wireless IP.
