  • Has your laptop multiple active network adapters, and the one you are using for WHS connection, is not the one in highest priority?

    Check if you have network problems as described in the FAQ How to Troubleshoot Network Connection Problems with Windows Home Server.

  • Hi,

    As we know, Wireless LAN (WLAN) Service is installed by default in WHS 2011. Since the issue only could be reproduced in Notebook, I think you need to check the way to connect to the server (Wired or Wireless).

    At the same time, you could run the following command in Windows PowerShell to verify the WLAN Service status:

    Get-Service | Where-Object {$_.displayname -like "*wlan*"}

    Olaf's link is really helpful here. Please follow his suggestion to narrow down the issue. :-)

    Regards,

    James
