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

How do I change my WD5000G032-001 external hard drive's IP address?

Very few external disk-drives _have_ an IP-address (the Apple Time-Machine is the exception). For those drives that do,
they obtain their IP-address automatically, by sending a 'request' out through their network-connection. A DHCP ('Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol') server on the network sends an IP-address to it. Most 'home' routers (wired or wireless) include the DHCP-server functionality.

So, the only way to change the IP-address is to configure the DHCP-server to always assign the desired IP-address whenever that specific device sends a 'request' for an IP-address.

I recently purchased an external hard drive, and how do connect it to my computer.

External Hard Drive is mostly of the USB interfacing type. If urs one is the same, then it is just as simple as plugging in a pen drive in the USB port. If it has external power supplies then u can easily figure out how to connect. There are two parts in the power supply (if external power supply cable is provided), 3-pin main power supply connector and other is the adapter which goes to the external hard drive.plug in the other end of the adapter into the hard drive (there is a hole in it). connect the main power cable to the adapter extension. now for the usb Hard Drive, connect the USB cable to the USB port of the computer. Switch on the power supply to the Hard drive and u r ready to use ur brand new External Hard Drive. If it is a Firewire interfacing one then u may need to open the CPU box, and then connect the firewire connector on to the motherboard firewire port. It is easy to identify, it is a red colored port/connector.

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.
