Wireless network - accessing peripherals!

  MaxUpload 10:22 14 Feb 2007

My set up is as follows :

BT Home Hub with two laptops working quite happily!

Various peripherals - External HDD,Printer,External DVD writer connected to a powered USB hub.

Is it possible to access these peripherals via the wireless network other than the method I use now which is to connect the USB hub to whichever laptop requires it?

Any advice would be appreciated but in "beginner's" language please - thanks!

Yes right click on the device you want to share with in my computer say a DVD drive select sharing and select share this folder on the network.
