FIOS Router Connectivity - Help Please
- Member Since
- Dec 03, 2011
I am new to Mac (so be kind). I am trying to setup my home network without having to buy an airport extreme or time-capsule. Below is my hardware and need to know if I can setup the network to utilize my hard drive as a time-capsule and setup my printer as a print server (for the apple).
Verizon Router 9100EM, FIOS TV & Internet service
Mac Mini A1347
Windows XP Tower (hard connection to FIOS Router)
External HD (Windows setup) - USB 2.0 connection
Printer - Cannon M600 (not wireless)
My thought was this:
1) Add the HD via USB to the router
2) Add the printer to my Tower (enable sharing)
3) Download any drivers to the Apple to recognize printer.
I cannot recognize the printer or HD from the apple. Any thoughts on next steps? Is there a thread to leverage. Thanks in advance to anyones help.
