Connecting to Wireless Network Renders Mapped Network Drives Empty

By sstepun ·
I have an interesting situation.

I have a Windows 2000 Active Directory Network with a DLink DWL-700AP Wireless AP. The wireless network is using WEP with a shared key.

The problem that I am having is this,

A user logs into the network with their laptop via network cable. They want to go a conference room so they disconnect the network cable which automatically connects them to the Wireless network (They have Dells with Dell Quickset). For some reason after that happens, when they try to access a file from a mapped network drive, the drives are empty. When I try and go to these locations via UNC they are empty also.

Is there some sort of authentication problem I am missing when they disconnect and reconnect?

Any help would be appreciated.

At what point in the Network is the AP?

I'm assuming that this has actually worked previously so has anyone moved anything around recently?

It could be something as simple as changing a Patch lead which has moved the WiFi AP to a location out of the Parent Domain onto a Child Domain or something like that.

Is this actually wiping the Shares or just showing them empty?
