home network these days is the uninformed use of firewalls. I would not use the network setup wizard, but instead use the following setup guidelines:
1) workgroup name the same on both PCs
2) file sharing enabled through Windows Firewall
3) some folder set to be shared
4) all other firewalls shut off
Note: In a peer to peer network with a router, there is no host PC. Each PC connects independently to the Internet.
I purchased a new laptop and decided that I should network it with my fairly new PC. First, I set up a new D-Link wireless router. Both the desktop and the laptop have access to the internet without any problems. I created problems for myself when I decided that I should network the 2 of them. I set up the laptop first and then learned that I should've run the Network Wizard on my desktop FIRST, as it is the host computer. Now I just want to undo the network setup that I've done on both computers! I have spent the entire day reading everything I can find about networking but I am unable to find out how to UNDO my network setup!! I don't need to have a network with these 2 computers at this time. Please, I hope someone can tell me how to undo this network stuff. I tried system restore but that was no help at all. It keeps telling me that I haven't made any changes - yea, right! I can't find anything online to help me, so, once again, I turn to the CNET forums for help! I have Windows XP on both. Desktop is Presario SR1234NX and the laptop is Acer3003WLCI
