    You have to partition and format the rest of the drive before it will show up. You can do this via Disk Management(type it in the search bar in the start menu, and it should come up).

    I don't know about the networking problem off hand but i can help with your hard drive.

    1) open the start menu and right click on computer.

    2)in the menu that pops up click on manage

    3) in the window that pops up go to the left hand side and find disk manegment

    4) you should now see you har drive displaying to partitions, my guess is that the one you've been missing is labled as unallocated, if thats the case do this:

    5) right click the unallocated space and click on "new simple volume"

    6)follow the steps in the wizard to give it a drive letter ect.. and then windows will format thew space and you should be able to see it in my computer and use it.
