We have two HP pc'c running Win7 on my home network. The wifes' has the ethernet connection and I am connected via a network adapter. The connections have been the opposite at one time. In the distant past we could both use the printer connected to her pc and see each others files. Now I can't connect to the network at all. Her pc says she is connected and mine says I am not. I have the password I got by asking the pc for it and have tried to log on with it and every other password I have used for anything. I get a error for incorrect password every time. I would delete the network but can't find a method that doesn't involve more entries than I am confortable making. So, anyone know why I can't log on or a resonably easy to delete the network and start a new one? Thanks as always for the help I get here.

When you state "network adapter", do you mean a wifi adapter?


Is the adapter connected through a USB port, or is it a dedicated card?


Have you tried connecting through a Ethernet cable to see if that works?


Is this a laptop or desktop?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
