Windows 7: Troubles with accessing network share with wireless connection

Troubles with accessing network share with wireless connection

Hi,

I have a laptop (with win 7 home premium) connected wirelessly to the router. I have a server connected (wired) with some shared folders on it.

Now, when I try to open the networkshare on my laptop (when I'm connected wireless to the network), it won't work 3/4 of the times I try. But to let it work, I just do a ping to the IP of the server and when I try again the networkshare will open. Very strange.

When I'm connected to the network with a wired connection, the networkshare will always open up directly.

Is something wrong with my wireless connection? I have an excellent signal and installed the latest drivers for the network card.

My network is setup as followed:

Wireless router -> switch (downstairs) -> switch (upstairs)
My laptop is wirelessly connected to the router. The server is connected to the switch that's upstairs.

Hope I explained it well.

Thanks,
Mathew

have you tried creating a desktop shortcut with
//192.168.1.4
as the target? (where 192.168.1.4 is the address of the server machine)

I just added a shortcut to my server. When I double click it, it works. Let's see in about half an hour if it still works then
