  • Is this computer plugged into the WHS or into the same hub/switch/router as the WHS?

    I ask because a Windows Home Server does not do any kind of routing nor act as an internet gateway the way a consumer router/firewall does... instead it acts just like any other PC on your home network and uses this network to backup you machines and have it's shares accessed through.
