Also, see if there are specific instructions for connecting to the file share with a Mac. If not, before you ditch your Windows machine, take a look at network drive you use to access the d-link. In Windows 7, click Computer, then look at the Network Location section. There should be something like "blahblahxxx(\\blahblahyyy)" next to the drive letter. Make a note of what they are named on your machine.
In OS/X, click Finder, then click Go on the menubar at the top and choose "Connect to Server". For the Server Address type "smb://blahblahyyy/blahblahxxx" (obviously replace these with the actual names you noted from the windows system), then click Connect.
