This is a quick over-view of the network hardware we will be using.
- D-Link Ethernet Broadband Router
- Netgear Wireless-N Access Point
- Linksys 10/100/1000 Gigabit 16 port Switch
- I-Omega 500GB Home Media Network Hard Drive
- HP LaserJet 4 M Plus Printer

In order to backup data and make it easily accessible from multiple machines we have installed a Network Hard Drive.

To make this Network Hard Drive appear in "My Computer you may have to "map" it.
These are the basic steps to map a network drive.

1. Click on the START MENU
2. Click on COMPUTER
4. Click BROWSE and select INITECHNAS
5. Click on the SUBFOLDER you want to map to.

PRINTER - There is an ip address on every printer to make sure that you are connected to the correct printer you must first give it a test to see what the ip address is so you will be able to print your page and will not be left in the dust.
FIRST: Press the online button once and the light will go out indiciating off line.
SECOND: Press the menu button until you get TEST MENU..
THIRD: Press the item button until you get SELF TEST.
FOURTH: Press the enter button.
Then a page will print out and will have all of the printers information.
About half way down the page to the right in the third line you will see the IP address if it matches the ip address on your computer you will be good to go.
Once armed with that information there should be no reason that you shouldn't be able to print from the same printer.
