It's strange.... everything was going swimmingly for at least a year now and now all of a sudden, I can't access my NAS drive using one of my laptops. All of the other laptops and computers access it just fine.

I can't remember doing anything different to this laptop that would cause this.

At first I was getting the standard "Network Path Was Not Found" error that I would get from time to time if I tried to access the drive before my network connection was solid on my computer.

So I tried using the Easy Search Utility to "reconnect" to the drive. I tried the mapping feature and when I asked to connect, it asked for a username and password (which I don't remember it asking for in the past), so I typed in the username and password that I use to connect to the drive when doing maintenance and I tried the username and password I use to connect to the drive when connecting remotely through DynamicDNS. Both ended up giving me an error that it couldn't connect.

NOW when I try to use the old mapped reference to connect to it, I get the following error... "Z:\ refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure the disk is properly inserted...."

I'm currently having troubles using my XP laptop (although I have another XP that is still connecting just fine)

One strange thing to note... while I was pecking at buttons trying to figure out what it could be, I started using the Wireless Network Setup Wizard and the first option it gave me was to Add Computers to the Network FSHGuest... which is a hospital network I was using. I didn't complete the wizard. Not sure if this has ANYTHING to do with my problem, but I thought it was interesting.

Oh... and I checked the wireless workgroup and it is still set to the same group that all my computers are. Can you tell I'm not terrible proficient at network stuff? Grabbin' at straws here.

Nevermind... figured it out. A stupid Norton Update caused the problem. I've shut Norton off for now. Just have to figure out how to configure it to allow my laptop to connect to the NAS drive. If you have any suggestions for that, I'd like to hear them!
