    I have three Macs on a wireless network. A G5, a G4 and an iBook.

    Is there some way of setting up a shared drive that all three could access via the wireless network (running off a 3com Wireless router)?

    Thanks

    Turn file sharing on on the computer to which the drive is connected (System Prefs->Sharing). You can then mount the volume on your other computers via the Network folder.

    You may (or may not, I can't remember) need to turn AppleTalk on (System Prefs->Network).

    TCP/IP networking will suffice for OSX machines. Many wireless routers will not route Appletalk over the Wireless connection, so printing to old Apple lasers and Nw with OS9 machines wirelessly may be SOL.
