Just connect it to your router and make sure it is shared. You do have a router, don't you?
Ok, so I am new to networking and I am having a few issues. I have bought a Western Digital My Book World 500gb network drive. I have it all set up but seem to be having problems going back and forth between users. I have it mapped on my laptop and my wifes cant access the drive and vise a versa. Is there not a way to truly share the drive at the same time? Meaning can we both access the drive at the same time from seperate computers and if I can tell me how to set it up in third grader terms. Thanks for you help
