Aft'noon Chaps, Strange query this, but need your help. I've managed to set up 3 - yes THREE home networks with my Desktop PC and Laptop. Now, it doesn't take much to realise I only REALLY want ONE of these networks, so question is - how can I delete the other 2 please? They're getting on my wick, and I want them GONE!!! It seems that I'm seeing the shares folders on the PC with lets say nw 1, but seeing the same folders on the laptop with nw 2.... Does that make sense??
On mine (XP Home) if I go to Control Panel>Network Connections I can then highlight any connection and if I wanted to I could then click on the large red cross in the menu along top of that window, and then press Delete on keyboard.
I have not tried it with my network icons, but I have deleted other stuff that way.
There is only actually ONE local network icon in control panel/network, but if I click on:: my computer/my network places/view workgroups THEN look below that to another section: Microsoft Windows Network/ and I get TWO local networks - one is the GOOD one, the other is one I want get rid of. However, SOMETIMES they are both visible, sometimes not! Yes, both PC and laptop are powered up at the same time. Another prob is, although I've setup on both 'allow printer share' I've sent a doc from laptop and the status (on icon in sys tray)tells me the doc name, owner and time but no status, so it appears that's it's got lost somewhere...
