I am a new member and this is my first posting.
I have recently set up my home wireless network,with a PC running XP and a laptop running Vista Premium-no problems.
I have set up the Sharing and Discovery items in the Network Sharing Centre for a Private network.
I have not yet used the laptop to connect to a hot spot in a public place.
How can I set up the Sharing and Discovery items in Vista to ensure security in a public place?
I only intend to use e mail and connect to the net in these circumstances, I do not wish to share anything.
Does Vista introduce limited access when I try to connect to a public network?
Any help will be appreciated.
