Mapping a local folder

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Rick Donnellon, Jan 10, 2005.

  1. I have local folder shared and mapped as the "W" drive. It works fine as
    long as my wireless network is working. When I'm away of my wireless network
    or my wireless is disabled this folder won't re-map. Since this is a local
    folder it should still map when not connected, shouldn't it? I have this
    folder mapped like this because one of my programs needs to see files on the
    "W" drive to work. I was quite embarrassed last we week when I was at a
    perspective customer's facility trying to show off some of my work and I
    couldn't get this drive to map. I've been trying for a couple hours this
    morning to map this folder with my wireless disabled with no luck! Can
    anyone tell what I'm doing wrong? I'm running Winndows XP sp2.

    TIA
