I'm a complete Noob at this, and cannot for the life of me figure out how to properly connect my newly-installed Debian (7.4) system to my home Windows network.
I need to be able to read files on my Debian box from the Windows network (can't do that now) and to read shared files on the Windows network from the Debian box.
Further, I (eventually) need to be able to print from my Debian Box to a Brother printer that is wirelessly linked to my Windows network (a lower priority, right now)
Any help (including links to info on this issue) would be seriously appreciated, especially if it can be done without using the command line interface. I do want to learn that, but if there are GUI tools that will do the job, it's better for the present time.
Also, if there is a particular forum to use for this, please let me know
Many thanks in advance!
