Network Drives won't reconnect after going to sleep.

I been having troubles with reconnecting my network drives after I put my computer to sleep and/or hibernate. I have server computers connecting to my Ubuntu Server with Samba. When I wake my computer from sleep mode I login and all of my network drives are disconnected. I wait until my wireless connection comes up and try to access my network drives but I get "The specified server can't perform the request". I have tried to change wireless network from "N" to "G" but that doesn't work. Tried renewing my IP but that doesn't work. They only way to fix is to log off and then back on.

  1. Client Operating System: Windows 7 Professional
  2. Server Operating System: Ubuntu 10.10 with Samba
Also, I have a few XP computers that connect to it fine and when they sleep and come back up it connects to my server fine. It's only Windows 7. Sadly I only have one Windows 7 computer so I can't check to see if it's Windows 7 or Samba.

Thanks in advance.
