    I have some wireless Netbooks running XP, that are occasionally not picking up all the mapped network drives that the logon script depicts. The most common being the users save drive.

    The logon script works fine upon ethernet between all other computers, so the issue maybe related to the WIRELESS network.

    oNet.MapNetworkDrive "driveletter:", "\\servername\drivename" is the command from the logon script.

    Side notes-
    *Sometimes the drive is there, but nothing inside.
    *Had some trouble on our new Win7 computers originally, although no longer. I believe it was a different problem.
    *All profiles/user folders have been given full access for the purpose of seeing if it a security issue, has not made a difference.

    Any common faults that could be causing this issue?

    cheers,
    Frenz

    Nvm, believe i have fixed it or atleast am on the right path.

    Basically windowsxp does not start the wireless fast enough and when users were logging on it was giving them cached data.

    To fix this i changed a few settings in group policy, turned off fast logon.
