i'm guessing that the wireless network is connected through the lan. if so, does the the network allow for the wireless traffic to come accross all ports? This is possibly a configuration issue on the ports and ACLS for the wireless connections...

Type the server address in:

Ex.

\\hebfps001 Hit enter

Should bring up the drives and directories, at least it does in mine

Then I go to the printer I want to connect to
Right click on it and click on "Connect"

Then its mapped

I have that problem sometimes (wired), and I have to actually share/map to the drive. Try going into my computer and map to the network drive that way.
