Mapped drive over WiFi network

    I am working on a WiFi network of three computers running Windows XP
    Professional. When I map a drive on computer #1 from computer #2 it does not
    show up as connected on computer #1 upon startup of computer #1. However, if
    I double click the mapped drive, the connection is present.

    I think there is somekind of race condition between computer #1 network
    connection and computer #1 checking for the mapped drive upon startup.

    Does anyone have a good fix for this problem?

    Do you have offline files enabled?

    I didn't enable the offline file feature when the drive was mapped.

    I'll check it out!

    Thanks for the tip!
