    Very Very Odd Wireless Problem.

    One of our teachers has a laptop, that is having connection issues.

    The Laptop connects.

    The signal is excellent.

    It can browse the entire network, including our second domain controller and see all shares.

    It can see the main server, but none of its shares.

    This alone would be an easy issue to fix, but for the fact that after some prodding (usually over 10 minutes) including repairing the connection ect for no reason it starts to see the shares.

    None of this happens at the same time or after the same set of events.

    It only affects this one laptop.

    I have been through the obvious of, new drivers, rejoining it to the network ect, but its got me and I am starting to develop a tick every time I hear this teacher mention his laptop.

    Ideas?

    If you've got £25 - buy a plugin-in card from someone you trust - that's what I did with the one laptop that didn't work properly.

    I had thought of buying another card.

    I will however try plugging it into a wired connection next time it goes wrong along with doing a nslookup on the server.
