Try mapping that drive as a network share under windows XP. This is done from "MY Computer" Map network drive. The set up your backups to back up the network drive you have created. If that does not do it then there is a contention between vista and xp as to the owner of the drive. Making the drive a mapped network drive should resolve this as neither should have ownership. Thats my best quess without knowing in detail your network setup.

Cisco access point


Hi,
How to configure wireless access point using a laptop
Wireless technology makes connecting to the Internet possible from anywhere within the range of the network. Unfortunately, not all Internet-capable devices have wireless technology, and many still require an Ethernet port connection. If you have a laptop with a wireless card and an Internet connection, you can make the laptop a wireless access point and share that connection with other devices, whether your laptop runs a Windows or OSX operating system. Windows computers allow other devices to access the wireless network via a physical connection to the laptop, while OSX computers allow AirPort equipped devices to connect as well, creating a second wireless bubble for the network.

Instruction:
WINDOWS
1 Turn on the laptop and the device with which you will share the connection. Ensure the laptop's wireless card is turned on and you have an Internet connection.

2 Connect an Ethernet cord to the port on the laptop, and the other end to the receiving device. You need to make the connection first, or you will not be able to access the sharing options for the connection.

3 Open the list of network connections on the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista, access this list by typing "Network Connections" into the Start menu search bar and pressing "Enter." In Windows XP, click on "Network Connections" in the Network and Sharing Center section of the Control Panel.

4 Right click on the wireless connection and select "Properties," then navigate to the Sharing tab. This tab will not appear unless both devices are connected.

5 Check the box marked "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection." Click "OK" to save the changes.
OSX
1 Click on the Apple menu and select "System Preferences." Click the "Sharing" option, then choose "Internet Sharing."

2 Select the Airport and wireless network in the "Share your connection from:" drop-down menu.

3
Select an output format for the connection in the "To computers using:" drop-down menu. Choose "Ethernet" for a physical connection or "AirPort" for wireless broadcasting.

4
Turn on the device you wish to receive the connection. Connect the devices with an Ethernet cable, or turn on the receiving device's AirPort card and connect wirelessly.

My problem is that I have a laptop hard drive, that's having issues. I can open my files, and I can't open a USB folder to back up the files. What should I do?


Enable "File and Print Sharing" on your Windows system.
Then, "share" your 'My Documents' folder.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to any router.
Take another computer, and another Ethernet cable, to connect this second computer to the same router.
Make sure that both computers are in the same Windows "workgroup".
On the second computer, "browse" the local network.
You should see your laptop computer, and the "shared" folder that it is offering.
Copy everything, over the network, from that folder onto the second computer.
Backup the files to a DVD-recordable disk, or to an external storage-device.

I got into my Coolmax external hard drive on my computer, via internet cable and router. I got into the hard dirve OK. I am trying to get another 2nd computer recognized on the hard drive. The Coolmax...


Indeed, it sounds like a sharing problem. But, based on your explanation, I'm not sure what your issue is as your terminology is not standardized.
Example: you said, "I am trying to get another 2nd computer recognized on the hard drive." What would be more accurate, is that you are trying to get the 2nd computer to recognize the 1st computer so you can access the 2nd computer's hard drive.

On the other hand, you said the hard drive uses a network interface, and you have it connected to the router. So does it have some kind of web based interface? No, if what I read about it says that it uses USB 2.0 and eSATA, which means it is directly connected to the 1st computer, and so it would have to be shared to the 2nd computer via the 1st computer.

I also note you don't specify any operating system, which is absolutely required. Because, for example: Windows 10 has sharing problems; I'm a professional, and I haven't bothered till they fix it.

You said: "I registered the ID and password", which does sound like you're using Windows to set up a share. But then you say, "Did Run //storage/person" which means nothing to me. As that's not any way to set up a share that I'm aware of. (Maybe I'll learn something ;-)) And then you say, "2nd computer's hard drive was not recognized" and that's confusing, because I thought you were trying to see the Coolmax which is on the 1st computer, right? Or is it on the 2nd computer. So it's really not clear what you're doing, or what you think you're trying to do. If you clear this up, I'd be happy to see what I could do to help.

Sharing of internet connection


You need to purchase a router and two network cables to connect the computers. If your computers do not have ethernet connections then you need a wireless router and two wireless network adapters for the computer. II recommend the Linksys W300N or similar for the router and the Linksys WUSB300N or similar for the network card. There are very simple set up instruction with the router and cards.

Unable to see Shared Storage Drive II on EasyManage via Wireless


Just got a Maxtor Share II drive and absolutely love it. Setting it up was a pain especially when the drive didn't remember the Administrators password.
Here's what I think the problem may be

1-Your router is not assigning an IP address to the drive
2-Make sure your router is configured to DHCP IP configuration not Static.
3-Before trying to use the drive make sure to install the Software/Drivers first.
Other suggestions

This may or may not apply to you. I got my Maxtor drive on 4-07-08 and from previous experiences with other computer products, ie, windows software, printer drivers, etc. The manufacturer in order to rush things out the cd software that comes with the product is not the final version and most likely the software already has an update on the manufacturer’s web site so it’s always good to check before committing to what you get on the CD. So sure enough the BIOS for my Maxtor Share II 500Gig hard drive was already old. I downloaded the new version upgraded the BIOS and my drive is working great. I hope this suggestions help. Enjoy your drive. Alfredo.

Windows repeats 'new hardware found' when I attch my maxstor One touch II


The reason is simple, your Maxtor drive "does not" support Windows-ME. Since Windows-ME is not supported by your Maxtor drive the drivers dont get resolved and will never get installed. FYI - Windows-ME is almost 10 years old. What makes you think Maxtor will support Windows-ME?
