Question about Linksys Network Everywhere NC100 Network Adapter
I have a PC (running XP home) with an external HD and a printer attached to it (USB).
Both are set to share with the computers on the network and "Allow network users to change my files" is checked as well for the external HD.
I have a home network through my wireless router, and a total of 3 computers access the WiFi (the above mentioned computer and 2 others). I would like the 2 other computers to be able to share the printer as well as the external HD of the desktop. Currently both computers are able to print through the printer and both computers were able to access and use the external HD - great.
Something happened about a month ago where one of the computers (running XP Professional) stopped being able to access the HD. It still can print but it gets some errors accessing the HD:
The HD is not accessible.
You might not have permission.
Not enough server storage is available.
There should not be any permission issues - it is allowed on the desktop and in fact the other wireless laptop can access the HD. It doesn't seem to be a connetivity issue b/c it shares the printer to this computer just fine. There is plenty of space on all the computers as well as the HD
What I tried was to delete the HD from my network places and then re-instate it. That didn't work either.
Try this, go to control panel and then system. The go to advanced tab and device manager. See if you have any "YELLOW ?'s" fix those that are part of the printer.
You will see your entire computer there. from HDD to Printers.
If no yellow ?'s, then go get the new drivers for the printer.
I also do not know if you defrag on a regular basis or not. That is a "MUST" and at least once a month if your network has allot of usage.
Another item to look at is this. When using the computer, click "CTRL/ALT/DELETE and look at the performance tab. See how much of your computers processor is being used. You may be maxing it out and then you must clean computer up. But, overall it sounds like a driver issue or device management.

Tips for a great answer:
Connect the Laptop and TV with a *CROSSOVER* ethernet cable and then enable "Internet Connection Sharing" on the Laptop's "Wireless Network Connection".
To enable "Internet Connection Sharing", open the Network Connections folder ("Start > Run" type NCPA.CPL and click OK). Right click the Wireless Network Connection, select Properties and then the Advanced tab [XP] or Sharing tab [Vista]. Tick the box "Allow other network users to connect through through this computer's internet connection.
