Map Drive being disconnected

By akshitshah ·
I have a windows 2000 server based network with several XP and windows 2000 clients. I have one particular XP client running on Dell inspiron 5100 hardware that keeps on loosing network connection to mapped server drive. Any ideas what I should be checking. This is the only machine that is having this problem. I have other Dell inspiron 5100 notebooks running Windows XP mapping to the same network drive without any problems. Thanks for your help.

Open a command shell and type: "net config server /autodisconnect:-1". This prevents the workstation from disconnecting a mapped drive after (by default) 15 minutes.
Hope it helps :)

try another network cable if the other answer didn't help. and go from there - check cable, router/hub, nic card. Try comtpuer at a diffrent location and see if happens to help count out the cabling.
