1: Using XP Pro I have a desktop and a laptop accessing the Internet using a router (one hardwired, one wireless) .. works OK.

2: Recently I used the Network Wizard on both machines to set up file and printer sharing ... works OK.

What I'd like to do now is actually remove/delete that home network so that we go back to 1: above, but for the life of me cannot see how to do this.

Any assistance most welcome,

R.

You just want to remove File and Printer Sharing? If this is the case, right-click Networks, select Properties, then right-click each Network Adapter and select Properties. Uncheck the box for File and Printer Sharing...

Hi Mauricio,

No, I want to get rid of the network altogether and be back to just sharing the Internet connection as outlined in my option 1:


In any case, where does one "right click Networks"?  Every time I do that either looking at the entire network or the computers comprising it a right click/properties just brings up an information window only.


Cheers,


R.
