  1. Hi y'all,
    Haven't posted in a while but I got a problem with 2 laptops that are accessing a windows 2000 pro server thru wireless routers.
    Each laptop was able to access specific folders or files on this windows 2000 server fine but just recently I'm getting this error pop up when trying to access it again "the specified network name is no longer available" (see .gif file below for desktop screen shot)
    what is causing this and how can I fix it? I checked on Microsofts knowledge base and they have no real solution for this..anyone got any clues?
  2. oh, and wired computer on the same network can access the folders fine.
  3. It's fixed..what I did was mapped a network drive to that shared folder and it seemed to work fine now.. weird.
