    I have a new MacBook Pro (my first Apple!) that I have successfully integrated in my home network. My home network consists of Linksys WRT54G wireless Router; Iomega network hard drive (attached to router); Dlink DPR1260 wireless print server connected to Brother HL5140 printer & Epson RX680 printer; and numerous windows PCs (wireless).
    My MBP recognizes the network hard drive folders.

    When I go to set up Time Machine, it keeps looking for a device hooked into it, but does not search for or see other potential back up locations.

    How do I set up Time Machine to regular back things up to a folder on my network storage drive?

    Honestly it's tricky to use a non Apple product and I would not recommend it. I use it because I know how the internals work and take the risk.
