Issue with Network Shares

I'm running Windows 2000 Advanced Server at home, with a desktop PC and a
laptop PC both connecting to it. Both of the Clients are configured with
Windows XPSP2. Both login accounts are configured to map a drive directly
through Active Directory, rather than using a login script.

Within about half an hour of logging in at either of the clients, the mapped
drive shows up in "My Computer" as being disconnected. However,
double-clicking on the drive does not reconnect it - subsequently there is
no way of browsing the server from either of the clients, even through the
administrative shares. This means that if I try to log either of the
clients out, any changes to the local profiles are not being propagated back
to the server.

Is there a simple solution to this? I've not made any changes to the
configuration on the server.

Thanks for getting back to me. I would have thought, however, that if a
drive was disconnected using AutoDisconnect, it would automatically
reconnect when it is double-clicked.

What happens with me is that I get an error message telling me that there
may have been an attempt to violate network security - I forget the actual
message text, but I'm fairly sure it's something along those lines.

Since my previous post, I have taken the radical step of completely
formatting the server, and reinstalling the OS.
