Question regarding easy file sharing for Windows 7 Ultimate

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Ok so here's my issue. I have a computer running on Windows 7 Ultimate, connected to internet through a wireless router. I want to create a network from my router, that users could connect to in order to get files that I share. The user will be able to connect to my network, just that I don't know how to create it so that sharing is enabled. So my question is about easy file sharing for Windows 7 and if you could provide me with some instructions, that would be great.
