Can't delete old server? help!

I am no longer at a business that uses a specific server. Now my mac which was using that server can't find it and keeps giving me a "connection failed" error. I can't find the old server at all in my networks and the error message is driving me crazy. The exact error reads...

"Connection Failed: The server "192.___.__.__" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and then try again."

How do i delete this old network? Thanks in advanced for the help.

Have you checked your Login Items in System Preferences > Accounts, to see if you have it trying to automatically reconnect at login?

It is showing what appears to be two servers:
one as "data" a second as my "name". I'm trying that now.

----------

I deleted both of those and the error still comes up.

Did you restart after deleting them?
