I am using a borrowed laptop to make this posting. I cannot access the Internet from my brand new desktop computer running Windows 8.1. Here is the full story. I share my daughter's wireless home network to access the Internet. (She lives upstairs, right above us.) Last night, for some reason, she changed the password of her secured (password protected) network. This morning, when I tried to connect to the Internet using my desktop running Windows 8.1, I got an error message basically saying "Cannot connect to the Internet.....Your network configuration has changed." When I asked my daughter about it she said she had changed the password of her network and GAVE ME THE NEW PASSWORD. Now I have been trying for hours trying to figure out how to change the password in my PC's network configuration so that I can automatically connect to the Internet like before. Unfortunately, no luck. My daughter uses Mac computers. She does not know how to change it in Windows. So borrowing her Mac I Googled. The best article I found was this one:
I came close, but the last and final step described in the above article does not match Windows 8.1 (may be it is so in Windows 8). I could not find the Security tab or anything where I can view and change the password for the network.
Somebody please help quickly. I have to access the Internet ASAP. A lot of work needs to done.
Thanks in advance. Again, your instructions has to be for Windows 8.1.
