Sharing WD My Cloud

I currently have my My Cloud hooked up to my Mac via a Cat 6 Ethernet Cable. Now it shows up in my Finder as shared, but no other computers in the house can access it. Is there a way to set my My Cloud up as shared, so other computers can access it with it connected to my Mac via an Ethernet Cable? If so, how would I make this possible?

MyCloud is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. So, in order for it to be visible to your entire network, it needs to be connected to the network, not directly to a computer.

So, unplug the MyCloud from your Mac, and plug it into your router. Then plug your Mac into your router.

Like it shows in the User Manual and the Quick Install Guide.
