WinME dropping connection to share

By nekronn99 ·
I have P3 800MHZ 128MB RAM with plenty of free HD space running WinME. The issue is that the network connection to a particular share on the NT server will suddenly end at erratic intervals. The user gets a msg indicating that the share is no longeraccessible. Other shared folders on the server are still accessible. Logging off and logging on rectifies the problem until the next time. Resources are okay and the network hardware (NIC, etc.) check out. It appears to be this one folder, but rights and permissions on the server are okay. This folder is accessed continually by this user and others, since it contains a lot of company information (mostly Word documents). I've disabled power management (hno hibernation mode, etc.). If anyone has any idea what is going on please let me know. Thanks.

WinME dropping connection to share

Not saying that this is the answer but, on the server where the shared folder is, look at the properties of the folder and sharing. Is the maximum allowed users set to 1 or more. Of course it is only set to one then only one person can acess it atonce. The same with more people.
This is what came accross my mind, hope it helps some.

Did you run through the network wizard on the ME machine and then make a share disk and run it on the server? Also, Me machine is probably missing a patch. (272991.usa) available at MS.
