Hi,

I am trying to connect to a wireless Hard Drive storage unit with a PC running Vista. I can connect to it just fine with a login and password and all works well in that department. My problem is with mapping it to a network drive. I go through the motions (My Computer -> Map Network Drive -> Select Drive Letter -> \\192.168.10.111\sharedfolder) and the login and password to connect are unique so I click 'connect using a different username' and type in the correct information. All seems well, except that when I reboot I get the message that it could not connect to the network drives. If I try to access the drive it asks me for a password (the username is what I set it to in the 'different username' prompt) and I type in the same password that I put in at the 'different username' prompt, and it connects fine. So the login and password are all correct, it just doesn't want to connect on boot. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

Also while I'm at it, just a quick question: When you connect to a shared network for the first time it will bring up that "Connect To..." dialogue and ask for U/P. When you type it in you can connect to the drive, but any subsequent times you try to connect it won't ask for the U/P. So how do I go about changing the user connecting to that device without having to log off and back on again?
