    can't map drive

    I have a wireless network using an airport. I can connect to the network, bur I cannot log into the server by mapping a drive.

    If I use a Mac, I can get to both the network and server, so the passwords and IP address that I am using are correct.

    I get a "\\10.0.1.2 exists but windows cannot find shared items" error message when I try to map the drive. I also have been able to get to a login screen, but the correct ID and Password are not accepted.
    This happens with PCs running both win7 professional and Win8.

    Suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you.
