Cannot reconnect all network drives

I recently upgraded from Vista Pro to Win 7 Pro.  I have one drive letter mapped to another Vista Pro machine.  Since upgrading when I start/restart windows I get a message "Cannot reconnect all network drives".  I can click on this message, double click on my mapped drive with the red X, and all is fine until I restart again.  How do i get this to reconnect automatically again as it used to? I have already tried:
1. Mapping another drive letter.  same thing
2. Reloaded the old driver for the net card as Win 7 updated it with the newest.
3. Networking is on office setting, not homegroup, same as before.
4. This is a peer-to-peer network.  No changes have been made.  I have verified the workgroup id-ok.
5. I have tried turning network discovery off/back on.

Anybody know about this?
Thanks, Jerry

I finally fixed it!  When i realized that this happened couple of years ago doing another upgrade I remembered how I took care of it then.  Power off the router and cable modem.  Somehow the router must be keeping track of network addresses or some such and got confused when a new OS took over one of the machines.  So I powered everything off, powered up the cable modem, then the router, then the computers.  Everything reconnected automatically just fine and has thru several days of computer restarts!!!!
