    The problem might have to do with the wireless connection problem that is showing up as ! over the signal strength icon.

    happens sometimes here too, generally removing and re-adding the drive letter/share fixes it here.

    Try to remap the drive.

    First:
    net use * /delete

    Then remap it using net use again:
    net use Z: \\server\share /user:username password

    This won't help the disconnect problem I'm seeing there.

    The command is completed in a command prompt.

    Open a command prompt and type what chev has stated replacing the variables below underlined

    Code:
    net use * /delete
    And then do this command

    Code:
    net use Z: \\server\share /user:username password
