I'm having trouble mapping network drives through VPN. It worked for awhile, but went out last week.

I am only having this problem with my wireless router at home. I tried unplugging the router and re-plugging it in... and I do not have the problem when I use wireless router at our local coffee shop.

We have a Dlink router. and I am working on XP Professional.

Any suggestions?

:up: I got it figured out. A co-worker said he just resets his router and modem when this happens, so I unplugged them both, got the modem back up, and then plugged the router back in and it worked. Simple enough, but too frustrating!

Thanks for the advice!

Sounds like from the first post only the router was being power on a off again.

For the future, typically it's a good idea to:

1. Power cycle the modem and wait a few minutes (they go "stupid" every now and then)
2. Power cycle the router and wait a few minutes
3. Then turn on the computers.
