Windows 7: Network Server access problem

Network Server access problem

Hi everyone, ive got a server running windows server 2003, 1 windows 7 pro desktop attached to the router, several other desktops attatched to a switch which then goes into the server and 3 laptops connected via wifi to the router. All of the desktops on the network (the ones connected directly to the server and the one connected to the router) and one of the laptops have internet and are able to access the drives on the server. But the other 2 laptops (which were working fine yesterday) have internet access but when they are unable to access the file server and get a message saying the location is not available. The other laptop is working fine so i can only assume its an issue with the other 2 laptops. I hope you guys can help, I cant think of whats up!

Do you have a domain configured? If so are the laptops on the Domain?

Check the amount of CALs installed on the Server. Can you give us an IPconfig of the Server and laptops? - Check that the DNS is set to the Server (if applicable).
