Ive set up a number of computers in our network to share files with my mbp through smb, and it always worked fine and still does, as long as I have the lan cable connected. When I switch to wifi, it cant connect to the server. Internet and everything works fine.

I have 2 APs, one is the router and the other is connected to the same switch as where I plug in my mpb and one of the shared PCs. If I reboot the mbp to XP and connect to the network with wifi, and the sharing does work fine. Can anyone help me troubleshoot this? - forum for fun people

This problem exists both on MBP and PPC machines. I think the recent issue is related to an WS2003 update a ran in July. I moved 1 share to my XSERVE to solve a client share issue, but I can't keep moving shares because my mac clients want to access them. MS has blown something with a recent security update. They need to fix it. Apple blew it in January of this year but quickly fixed it and now MS has blown it. I wonder how long it will take them to fix it.
