Weird iBook problem

My iBook suddenly seems to be unable to detect my network hard drive. Which is odd because it had no trouble with it a couple of days ago, and I haven't changed any settings on anything. About the only thing that happened recently is that the battery went flat yesterday and the computer shut down. But I can connect to the internet and print, so it seems to know that the network is still there. However, even if I disconnect temporarily the network name still shows in finder.

The drive is still there and still working - I can access it from my PC in Windows and Linux.

What I think I need to do is redo the network settings on the ibook - not just Wifi, but the network name etc.. Any suggestions on how?

Later - Just tried running Netinfo Manager, it says trusted_networks [no value]
Does that mean anything?
