Wi-Fi sharing settings

  Icky 17:39 09 Sep 2008


I've just bought a D-LINK cable router and want to make sure I tick the correct 'sharing' settings.
When I'm using the D-LINK installation wizard a Windows Vista window opens for sharing the connections. Do I tick the box for "Allow other network users to connect through the computer's internet connection" and/or also the "Allow other network users to control or disable the shared internet connection"?

I bet you would never guess I'm new to this!!!

Thanks for any advice.

If you have a PC that will be connecting to the PC attached to the router in order to connect to the internet then tick yes for the first one (but I doubt it, so do not tick the first one to allow)

I would not tick the second one either (and it may be unavailable when you untick the first one anyway)
