I have a home wireless network setup and my PC has an external hard-drive that I use to store pictures and other files. I've never had a problem doing this before, but all of a sudden, when I try to copy files from my laptop, I get a couple of files across and then I get
Network Error There is a problem accessing [path] Make sure you are connected to the network and try again
From that point on, I am unable to get out beyond my firewall. Although my laptop sees the wireless network, it is unable to interact with the pc, nor is it able to access the internet unless I reboot the laptop.
My laptop is running fully updated Vista, and the PC is running XP sp3, fully updated.
Any idea what the problem is? If I go directly to the PC I can access the external drive with no problems at all.
**Update - Recycling everything as mentioned below does not help. :(
