Issues Wireless networking to Windows 2008 Server
Hi everyone, I have put a new server in for SIMS. It’s got 2008 64 bit (not R2) and SQL 2008 64 bit running on it. I managed after much fun to get SIMS up and working on it during the break. I found it wouldn't run the management task of back-up despite lots of checks and double checks. The answer there was to service pack SQL to SP1 and then it ran without any grumbles at all - how odd!!
Anyway this post is to ask about the wireless laptops I have for PE to do electronic registration through SIMS. Prior to the upgrade (from 2003 server running SQL 2005 to 2008 server running SQL 2008) they could attach to the SIMS server without any issues. Now, they lose their S:\ drive every hour or so and need us to remap to so they can run SIMS. I'm sure this is linked to the 2008 upgrade as (similarly) my Windows 7 PC used to drop or lose its S:\ drive occasionally with the 2003 SIMS server.
I've looked through the firewall settings and all seem to be ok (but I've not done a 2008 server course yet). The settings in Network + sharing places seem to be right too, although I can't change discovery from 'custom'.
So have any of you had something similar you could point me towards. Or better - have any of you who got or done a server 08 course know what I need to do to rectify?

My fellow Tech has created a similar post, but proabably he has explained it better.
Wireless laptops lose connection to 08 server
