Windows Server 2003 clients keep dropping mapped network drives.
Posted on 2013-06-06
We have a Server 2003 domain, all clients are Windows 7 with a couple XP Pro users. All machines have been part of the domain for years. They just lost their Cisco router, and have replaced it with a business Netgear router.
All clients have a network drive MAPPED - most clients to do not reboot their PC every night, never have. When they arrive in the morning, the lose connection to their MAPPED drive and have to reboot to get the network drive back.

configuration on the network has not changed.
Server 2003 has not changed.
Clients have not changed.
The only thing that has changed is the router, and not sure exactly why this would start happening.
