Slight problem with Samsung N130 and Ruckus
Just to ses if anyone else has used the Samsung N130s on a Ruckus network - I rolled out a set of 20 last week and some teachers have said they were unable to save work to server.
This happended on orig netbooks (Samsung NC10s) but an upgrade on Ruckus software fixed it PDQ.
Downloading latest (its up to 220.127.116.11.5 for info) and just upgrading now - will report next week to see if that's (hopefully) cured it

Simon it is very unlikely that any wireless AP would be stopping a client from saving work on a server.
It sounds like it could be down to a configuration or an ACL somewhere on your network.
Is the client able to ping the server? Can you try to telnet to the server from the client on the port used for filesharing, 139 or 445 i think (you will need to double check this).

I've just had two members of staff reporting the same thing. NC10 I've just had I just re-ran the activation wizard (the one that downloads the little file) and it seems to have fixed that one. My tech being the other but did the same and sorted.

this should work
download driver version 18.104.22.168 from here
ATHEROS Wireless LAN 2.4/5GHz - Download Driver AR5007EG
its called driver series 5, make sure you delete the old driver files first

135 - 139 is netbios over tcp/ip ( I think ) and 445 is smb

It's the atheros cards, they are absolute rubbish. Each machine we have with them don't work nearly as well as the machines with the intel wireless cards. It's not just on ruckus networks, it's also on hp networks (as tested at another school)

I don't have a problem with my Atheros based NC10s.
I have a problem with my Realtek based N130s

New drivers haven't made any difference - teachers still reporting can't save to network folders
I've lodged a proper support call with the net-ctrl helpdesk

We had same sort of issues with realtek drivers but with Toshiba laptops and our ruckus wireless kit, i can't remember how many different drivers i tried but was a complete pita.
We got them working in the to a suffiecient standard, but we had to turn the roaming aggression all the way down to stop them wondering off and finding another ap which was in other rooms. Maybe try this, should be in the advanced part of the driver properties.

Yes, wireless chipsets do tend to have more sensitive roaming aggression these days.
