Did you map the drives by %computername%\shared folder or
by the Ipaddress\shared folder?
If you map by IP addresses and are using DHCP to automatically
assign IP addresses than it will not be able to find the mapped drive
if the address is given to another computer.

If the wireless card has limited or no connectivity than basically
it is Not able to send or receive. I would reboot the router by
unplugging it for 30 seconds and plug it back in. If you have
changed the location of the Router than the signal maybe so low
that the wireless card can't maintain a connection.

Also you need to be specific and provide the exact error you are
receiving since it will narrow the possible issues.
