Adding an external hard drive to a home wireless network

I recently purchased a new external hard drive and connected it up to my home network. It is connected to my desk top via USB connection. It works fine on the desk top, I have three laptops that share my home network and they can all see the Icon for the external hard drive. However when they click to connect a window pops up saying, "you might not have permission to use this network resource see your administrator" and below that it says "Not enough server storage is available to process this command". This happens on all three laptops.I have tried all of Microsoft suggestions changing the reg edits etc. but no luck

I have a 2003 Dell Dimension 4600 and the network adapter is testing fine. However I am unable to access broadband internet and email through a wired USB/Ethernet connection to external modem. Both the...

the hard wired connection to the modem could be a system configuration issue, the cable has gone bad, or the modem is having connectivity issues with the service.
if your optical drives are not working physically, then you can't really fix that. if they just arent responding properly or Windows cant detect that they are there, then you may need to reinstall the driver software for the drives. which can be found on the Dell website or the manufacturer of the optical drives.
yes you can set up a wireless connection with a USB adapter but the modem also needs to have wireless capability in order for you to create the connection.
there are external USB optical drives available. so you can purchase a usb connected CD/DVD drive or burner. they shouldnt be very expensive nowadays.

Bought a new computer. would like to download from old to new.

Three choices

  • Get a 4-port wireless router (wireless for future upgrades like wireless printers, laptops or WirelessNetworkAccessStorage). Belkin has lifetime warranty and great customer support. Linksys is Cisco's generic line. They're good too because of who makes them, but sometimes* a headache to set up.
  • Set up your router via the instruction that come with it. Take care when naming the connection or SSD as this cannot contain any offensive language, due to FCC regulations.
  • Disable the wireless aspect or set a wireless password.
  • Set the entire drive(s) on your old PC for sharing by right clicking on the drive in Windows Explorer, selecting Sharing & Security and checking the appropriate boxes after being warned that you are about to share the drive.. or just share each individual folder you wish to move.
  • Create a new folder somewhere on your new computer, but never in Windows or Program Files. Desktop is fine but don't clutter it with a bunch of icons, in ... or put new folder in My Documents.
  • Hook up both computers by plugging each into a port on the router.
  • Start the Network Setup Wizard from Control Panel. Your network type will be "Other" and click Next, put a tick by "... computers connect through a hub..." and click Next. Put a tick in the appropriate boxes, clicking next, repeat until you get to the computer name, etc. Name your new computer, give a description (like One of Two, One of Five, Two of Three) of your computer. Create a Network name on the next page, it'll probably already say HOME, MSHOME or WORKPLACE. You can name it whatever you want. Now you will have a different box that asks if you wish to enable printer and file sharing. Say yes, Okay out of the warning after you read it and then click Next after reviewing the info. Create a Network Disc or just do the same on the new computer.
  • Reboot both machines
  • Go to My Network Places on the new computer
  • You should see the shared drive, click on it and move your files to your new computer.
All the old components in your old system are most likely still sought by others. Whether it be memory, processors, Power Supply, CD-Roms or the MotherBoard and a lot of teh parts can be switched over to your new computer... including the old hard drive. Do not give anyone the License Key off the back of your old computer. That can be used on another computer you own, but only one, under the changed hardware clause of the contract. If purchased new and someone privateers that key from you, you can still contact microsoft as owner and reactivate your new PC with the key, by telling them you have changed hardware. That will put an end to the use of the computer with the stolen key unless Windows Updates was compromised.

Your new system should have bays for more drives. By adding the old drive as a slave drive on the second HDD Controller you can give yourself more storage space.

External Hard Drive Enclosure: (These can be purchased separately, with no hard drive installed)
Open the enclosure, plug your drive into it & close the enclosure
Power on your new system
Plug the new drive into the power receptacle/surge protector
Plug it into your USB connection (or however it connects to your PC)
Windows should discover the drive immediately and ask what you wish to do. Open the drive with Windows Explorer and copy the files you want to your new drive

Do not try and copy WINDOWS folder to your new system or any programs unless programs are stand alone. If the programs require installation, use the disk. Anything else could cause instability on your new system if moved to the wrong place.

Stand-alone networking

What you want is called a NAS, Networked Attached Storage, which is generally a relatively small device with its own hard drives, a network connection, and a dedicated computer to perform file serving tasks and network communications. Unfortunately, your FreeAgent is only a hard drive, with no file server or network connection, so it must be attached directly to a computer through its USB connection if it is a FreeAgent 500GB, or through its USB, firewire, or eSata connection if it is a FreeAgent Pro 500GB.

There are some NAS's which have USB ports, and if you were to purchase one (not cheap), you could connect your FreeAgent to it as additional storage.

Although probably an unsatisfactory answer, I hope this helps you plan your next step.

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 200 GB... Problem

Its going to be a hardware thing. Is the drive connected to a UB2 port? The network itself has its own data transfer rate  ( ie. gigabit ) you need to make sure you cables are no longer than 6 ft, its plugged into a high speed port, and that all ports on the chain are of the same speed. If you have the option, go firewire for this. If that does not rectify it, check adminsitrator properties of the drive.
