Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand to share an external USB hard drive and be accessible to the entire network, you can try:

  • permanently plugging the USB/portable hard drive into one of the networked computers and sharing it; or
  • replace your router with a model/version that can accommodate a USB specifically for that purpose such as a AirPort Extreme Base Station with Gigabit Ethernet; or
  • a device server that will allow you to plug in a USB device and attach over a Ethernet network.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Using Netgear DG834 ADSL Modem, want to add a netgear WNDR3700 Wireless Router to act as an assess point


The simplest way to add more ethernet ports is to use a network hub and connect it to the Netgear DG834 instead of the Netgear WNDR3700. This does not require any configuration.

Cant connect to the internet


You did not elaborate further why you cannot connect you PSP to internet. But I will assume that you have a wireless connection within reach and that your PSP Wi-Fi switch is turned on (switch on the right).
1.) If your wireless network requires a Network Key (WEP or WPA), you need to know the exact key to be able to connect to it. 2.) To connect to internet, open Internet Browser in your PSP and this will prompt you to connect to a Wireless network. 3.) To set-up, press the 'scroll right' button (>) until you reach the "Network Key". Choose the type of key your network is using (WEP, WPA or other) then press 'scroll right' (>) again until you reach the last menu. 4.) If you do not encounter any error, you can start browsing. If you still do, you may have to leave the specific errors or further details of your problem for us to assess...

The ".Ink" you refer to is really ".lnk" (the first character of the extension is a lower-case "L," as in link, not an "I"). Shortcuts use "lnk" as their file extension.

This kind of thing can happen if you install software from a networked drive and then later detach from that network, which is a common situation if you use a laptop computer that you disconnect from your office network and take home. To find the shortcut, follow these steps: Open Windows Explorer and press Ctrl-F (hold down the control key and press F) to bring up the Find dialog. Select "Local Hard Drives" in the Look in dropdown, and enter ".lnk" (or whatever the error message reported for the name of the bad shortcut) in the Named field. When you click the Find Now button, Windows will search your hard drives for the shortcut and display what it found.

Pxe-e61 meida cable error


PXE-061 error also know as a "PIXEY" erroroccurs when the system cannot find a bootable device and attempts and FAILs to boot from the Network Adapter. Most newer computer network cards have the ability to boot to an operating system thru the network (A function generally only available over large domain networks).

In your case, the most likely senario is that the hard disk drive has failed.

If this is a portable system, remove and reseat the hard drive, then boot to the SYSTEM BIOS and see if the drive is detected.

If this is a desktop/tower system, open chassis, reseat the power and data cables to the hard drive, then see if the drive is seen in the BIOS.

Ensure the hard drive is the 1st in the boot sequence.

If the system still will not boot to the hard drive, time to replace the hard drive.
