    I just bought a new mac book pro i5, this is my first mac and I know I'm going to love it but right now i'm getting frustrated with it.

    My current problem is:

    I have a wireless external hard drive that is connected to my cisco wifi box. I have my two desktops and other laptop connected to the the external hard drive through the network (no wires), but I can't figure out how to get this mac to connect to it.

    Please Help!!!

    Does your Cisco WiFi box support OSX shares? What model is it?

    it is not connected with a USB, it is connected with a ethernet cord. This is a high end external hard drive.
