How does one deploy a file server in an existing wireless network?

By efrivers ·
I have set up a wireless network for our very small engineering company, and I was tasked to include a file server, (i.e. Windows Server 2008 R2). I have one router as an access point to the Internet. I would like to set the server as accessible using the existing router using on of the LAN ports. Currently, users are all wireless and have no problem connecting to the Internet through the existing router. So, how should I deploy the file server so everyone can access it like they access the Internet since they are wireless to begin with?

Connect the fileserver to the router. Add the server to your domain or workgroup.

Share what is necessary and set the Workstations to be able to read those Shares.

Not sure what is already in place here to suggest anything more.
