Troubles with accessing network share with wireless connection
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.
