I open up windows explorer and all I see is my computer with an hour glass/magnifying glass circling it and it's just hoses the laptop. At first I thought it may be a bad port on the switch so I moved her over to another and just in case i swapped out her patch cable. But that did not do anything. So the next logical step is for me to have her not use the docking station but I doubt that may be the issue. Any suggestions are welcome...
After reading a Technet thread about the same problem only one solution seems to be working.
There are many other works arounds for this problem in the link below but this one seems to be working the best. Hope it helps. First start an administrator console by entering cmd into the searchbox on the start menu, right click the little icon and choose "run as administrator". In the console enter the following commands to change the MTU: Type into command window "netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces" without the quotes. Take note of the id number of the wireless interface. Then to change to mtu 1460 use the following command. "netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface id mtu=1460 store=persistent"

Very bottom of the page shows the working solution for this.
Yes this has already worked to fix this same type of problem but only applies if this is a wireless connection. To make things more complicated win7 wlan
