  • It could be nice to know what kind of disk you're trying to access: model number and specs of the disk/appliance could help

  • If your are using Ubuntu, you should look for a wireless device with the name of the external that you are trying to connect to. The device will be signaling for your "Network-Manager" icon from the left top of your panel. It would like connecting to a router. Mostly, you can just type in the ip address of the external in your browser box and access it's webpage. Try these things and tell us what happens.

  • Accessing wireless external drive is some tricky. U can use "Network Attached Storage Devices / Network Storage" for that purpose, in which u put a drive in, and connect it to a router (Linksys / Dlink). Though more details r required here as the other members already asked.
