  1. Is there a way to change the drive mapping depending on the SSID I am connected to?


    I use my laptop at work which I have a mapped drive on my laptop that cnnects to the NAS at work when I am out of the office but when I am in the office my drive map cannot connect to the same server name. I have to change my drive mapping server name when I am in the office. Is there a way to have windows 10 change the drive mapping for the network drive depending on which wireless network it is connected to so that when I connect to the office wireless network It would map to the local I of the network drive and when I am connected to any other wireless network it will use the DDNS drive I have established?

    :)

    Map Network Drive in Windows 10


    Hello cognus, Is there a way to change the drive mapping depending on the SSID I am connected to? :)

    I find the best way to keep a mapped drive always available is to use OPTION ONE and select Reconnect at sign-in at step 5.

    The (Remains connected after next logon) command in the other options should work for you as well though.

    It's normal for the mapped drive to have a red X on it after not being used for a while, but clicking on the drive should have it be automatically connected again after a short wait sorta like waiting for a HDD to spin back up after being turned off when idle.

    I'm not aware of a way to keep a mapped drive to always stay active.

  3. Mapped Drives

    Hi DarlaSansoucie,

    There are several reasons for this issue. It could be due to a corrupted registry file, a software conflict or an issue with your network connection. I'd like to get more information regarding this so we could further check and provide a more established
    workaround. Kindly answer the following:

    1. Have you made any changes on your computer prior to the issue?
    2. What is the exact error message that you're receiving?
    3. Do you have a 3rd party anti-virus installed on your computer?
    4. Are you getting the same issue on a different user profile?
    5. Is your mapped drive connected to a company domain?

    In the meantime, try reconnecting it by following the steps provided in this
    article
    .

    Here are the other troubleshooting steps that you may try:

    • Install all the latest Windows cumulative and security updates.
    • Install all the latest device drivers.
    • Temporary disable your anti-virus to check if the issue persists.
    • Contact your IT department to check for any Group Policy issues.
    To notify us and have us get back to you, simply reply to this post.

    On change of SSID "Unable to Connect to this network" error message

    Hi,

    I have changed the SSID on my router. So far only 1 of my 5 PC's was able to make a WiFi connection to the network without complications. The other PC's see the new SSID and but on executing the connect command we receive the error message "Unable to Connect
    to this network".

    Forgetting the Old SSID in Manage WiFi Settings doesn't work, and it seems the only way to fix this dumb error is a registry edit.

    Please provide the correct instructions for both Windows 10 home and pro versions.

    If I could also ask: Why the **** am I expected to hack the registry to remove old SSID references. And why is this error still occurring for users since XP?
