Although you will need to either right click a file, select Sharing and security, set permissions and users to allow access. Or there is a wizard that can walk you thought it.

I would recommend you get a router with a switch built in, you will be much safer!

then to access the share you can do winKey + r (run command), and type \\IP_Address\share, or \\PC_Name\share, or go through network connections.... which ever ways works best for you.
