My neighbor wants to share her wireless with me and gave me her "netgear name" and a "password"
The problem is that her computer is set not to broadcast and I don't want to go over and work on it in case something were to go wrong.
So I did go in and "add" her connection name to the preferred list (on my computer) and put her password in also. I did it like this website says to and how MS Help said to: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-connect-your-laptop-to-an-unknown-ssid-in-1.navId-323059.html
I think the problem lies in the info I am putting in there. Maybe I need something off the bottom of the router I don't know, and what would the info. look like?
Now, if I am able to get on her computer, should I just go to "Control Panel" > "Network Connections" > then choose the connection then click "Properties" > "Advanced" > and then tick this box right? - "Allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection.
Also I would like to know if I would be better off creating a guest account for myself with the wizard on her computer?
Thanks in advance, Chris
