Mapped Network Drive suddenly causes Explorer.exe to stop responding... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Vista 32bit machine I'm working on with a small home network consisting of 2 Laptops and a LaCie NAS Drive. Recently there was a power outage and the switch that was handling the DHCP was knocked out, so to allow the system to function I turned all address servicing over to a Qwest Modem/Router/Switch. Since doing this, the network subnet went from .1.1 to .0.1 so I had to give all network connected devices new addresses.

    The NAS drive was functioning just fine as a Mapped Network Drive and then suddenly, anytime I attempted to open it...it would lock up explorer.exe every time. I can see the drive by typing in it's IP Address in the run command, this gives full functionality of the drive as well. But, when I try to add it as a Mapped Network Drive it always locks the system. The other laptop works just fine mapped.

    I've tried a reboot, POPO, but nothing will curb this behavior.

    Just some more info on the setup, both laptops are setup to run both wired and wireless simultaneously.

    Appreciate any ideas! Thanks!
