Hello,

I'm using both Windows XP and Windows Vista.
So, scenario goes:
I go to My Network Places (or Network for Vista) -> Dbl click on a folder, then i login to access the folder. I'm in that folder.
Now, I want to go to a different folder in the My Network Places. Dbl click on a different folder, then login but error message pops up saying:

"...Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.."

So, i believe this error occured because i already login to a folder before and that i cannot simply go to another different shared folder.

My question is, How do I D/C or log off the connection to the server or shared resource without the need of restarting the computer or deleting the network using command prompt and typing: net use \\servername /delete

Regards,

Student01

Oh shoot,

my apologise. I have my computer on LAN and my laptops on Wireless. Basically the computer is hooked up with an ethernet cable to my Netgear Modem Router DGN2000, and all other laptops on wireless. It's a home network with all computers and laptops under the same workgroup.

sorry still kinda not understanding with Networks a lot.

You can map the shared resources via Map Network Drive, and see if that solves your issue.

Another way to eliminate the problem would be to go the the computer sharing the folders ad do the following. One eliminate all of the shares except one. Then in the shared folder place shortcuts to the other folders you want to access so all of the work can be done from the same share.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
