The specified Network Name is no longer available – 802.11g/xpLocked
Hello all, I am currently pulling the rest of the hair out of my head. Can anyone help me!!!!!!!!!! Thanks in advance!
Cable Modem – Linksys 802.11g wireless router – 2 gigabit netgear switches – 6 nodes (5 win2000 boxes and print server).
No DNS or WINS server – strict NetBios/IP p2p network.
So purchased new dell inspiron 9200 laptop with xp sp2. Added to workgroup with cat5 cable. Could copy large files over wired lan with no problems.
installed Linksys 802.11g card and wireless setup was flawless.
Can download large files from internet
can copy files less then 1mb over network
ping with 65500 buffer and no packet loss 25x
here’s the catch, if I go to \\computera\sharea and try to copy over file greater then 1mb – there is a 5 second pause, then the copying files dialog appears and status bar moves to about 60%, then hangs for about 30 seconds. Next I receive an error that states:
“The specified Network name is no longer available”
And the file is not copied over.
The event log shows:
The redirector failed to determine the connection type
disabled all wireless security and firewalls, etc.
I install the same wireless card to another notebook with win2000 and everything works fine.
Been working with wireless networks, etc. for years – never had this problem. Anyone else ever see this.
