Problem:

I have two laptops both running Windows XP SP3 and a NAS (QNAP) box hooked
up directly to the router. Both laptops can access the network resources when they're connected straight to the LAN port. However, while they're on wireless, both laptops unable to access the resources but getting this error:

> "An error occurred while reconnecting P: to
> Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use.
> This connection has not been restored."

device and the internet is working while in wireless mode.

 

Solution:

Problem caused by Netbios traffic being blocked. To allow Netbios traffic Telnet to the router and run the command:
