I've got a notebook here that I've had connected to my wired network for a while. It has a drive mapped to another machine, which is always available. When I hibernate the machine, then resume it, the network drive reconnects. However I just bought a wifi card for it, and when I hibernate then resume the notebook, the network reconnects fine but the mapped drives don't. Any ideas?

Net Use in cmd after resuming it shows the drive is still there, but it says "Unavailable", yet I can ping the machine, and if I delete the drive and connect it again it works fine, but this is a pain. I'm trying to get this to automatically happen because this is supposed to be a media center ... it currently boots from hibernation in <20 sec, nice for a 400MHz craptop :P

I did see a way to fix this the other day but I can be damned if I can find it. Ill keep looking and get back to you. It involves using a shortcut on the desktop to run a built in windows command.

You mean a .cmd file with this in it?
Code:
net use drive: /delete
net use drive: \\computer\\share

It will just reconnect the share automatically. The share is probably unavailable because the wireless connection is disconnected on the first few seconds after resuming from hibernation, which doesn't happen with wired connections.
