Hi, I have an iMac computer with the latest Snow Leopard OS as the main computer, this is connected to an airport extreme, which in turn is connected to an Edimax AR-7084gA router, the latter is turned off wirelessly and is only used for the modem, I have a WD Mybook network drive connected to the airport extreme via an ethernet cable, my windows XP OS connects faultlessly to the internet through the iMac, but I cannot see the Mybook network drive on the windows computer, however I can see it on the iMac in finder, I would also like to be able to share my Lexmark printer, which is also connected via an ethernet cable, I am new to a Mac, having previously been a windows user, can someone help me sort this out, please note I will need simple instructions (idiots guide) otherwise will not understand any overly technical terms, not sure if this is to do with sharing from the Mac and even then I have not really got a clue, as there are so many different things to either tick or untick, hope I've delivered enough info.

What is your IP address? I think the drive works on the subnet and if your computer is on a different one, that might be your problem. My guess is that you do not have you iMac's NIC set to DHCP.
