Problem accessing shares via wired and wireless
I've had peculiar problem with a new teacher laptop that I set up to access my simple shared \\suitec01\classwork folder and print via the server to the school printers.
It seems to setup OK and then I gave it to the teacher who said he couldn't print or access \\suitec01\classwork but could still access the internet.
I tried it out and he was right - it didn't work - i tried various things and then noticed that it connecting to the network via wireless as well as wired (the single school wireless wasn't placed to serve this classroom so it was chance it could see a signal and connect)
If I disabled the wireless or kept the wireless and removed the net cable - the problems accessing the server went away.
During the fault finding - it was more peculiar as the machine could access other shares on the server (junior librarian shared folder for instance) - just not the one needed :confused:
Anyway, since he'll be using the laptop wirelessy at home, I've just pulled the wired connection to "solve" the problem.
It seems strange that this is the first time I've had this problem in my schools but maybe I've just been lucky up till now.
Has anyone else had this type of problem and is there a way of managing it better?
