    I have a laptop running Windows XP Home and a desktop running Windows 2000
    desktop. Both have firewalls set to allow communications between each other
    on a wireless network using DLink DWL-650+ PCMCIA card in the laptop and
    DWL-520+ PCI card in the desktop. I have setup accounts on the desktop and
    laptop to allow them to communicate. All was working fine. Then I had to
    restore the laptop and now, I cannot keep the connection to the desktop. I
    create the mapping to the data drive on the desktop and the next time I start
    up, when I look for the mapped drive, it isn't there. I try to remap the
    drive and it says that the link is still active and cannot create a new link
    even though there is nothing showing on the desktop, my computer or network
    neighborhood. Can anyone help as this is driving me totally nuts?
