How can I remove a temporary computer-to-computer network?

I created a temporary computer-to-computer local network connection in an attempt to transfer files between two computers (which was unfortunately unsuccessful). However, the network is still there and I want to remove for security reasons. How can I remove a network that I put in place? I checked the troubleshooting guides and there doesn't seem to be any information.   Two computers are still in close range (I don't think that our House is still big enough to get out of the beach), and I clicked 'save the network' when I did. I am running Vista.
any help would be great

Open the Control Panel and go to network and sharing Center. Click Customize to the right of the current network in network and sharing Center , and then click merge or delete network locations at the bottom of the screen again. Merge or delete as you wish.

You will also need to click on manage network connections on the left in the network and sharing Center and remove the network you want.

    Thank you!

    I can't help but wonder if the computer is still on the same network as the printer. Even if you have no more than the computer, you may give it to someone else who uses the same network as you? I think it's weird that the printer is always to see the computer. If this computer and the printer are not on the same network, perhaps to restore the printer to the factory settings would help. To do this test, please complete the following steps;

    1. On the front panel of the printer, scroll down to the second main menu screen by sliding your finger to the right of the screen to the left
    2. Choose settings, or Setup
    3. Select printer maintenance
    4. Go to restoration
    5. Choose both restore factory default settings

    Once this operation is completed, you will need to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network. Please let me know if this is the case. Thank you.

    original title: grafting the internet

    Hi Maureen,

    That your router has security enabled protection?  My guess is it doesn't and it's the way that person uses your wireless connection (like someone to visit with a laptop you could if you configure).

    As a general rule, access to the router is by typing (or whatever your gateway address) in the address bar of your browser and you will be able to bring up the router configuration settings.  He'll probably want a username and password.  Sorry, I can't help you there because I have no idea what it could be.  Try admin/admin or admin/password or administrator/administrator or administrator/password or admin and no password or admin and no password (the classic default settings).  Your ISP or service of technical assistance of the manufacturer of the router may be able to help put this in place.  After that, how configure security entirely depends on the ISP, the router, the type of operating system you have, the type of internet connection you have and a number of other factors that I have no way to know, even if you told me that information.

    In fact, to see if this applies even, go to the Network Center and sharing, and click on manage wireless connections.  Select and double click on your network.  Click the Security tab and see if it is configured with the entries in the drop boxes first two points in the key with a password applies.  If it does not exist, then there is no security on your wireless router.  If there is, then your network is secure without doubt.

    When you see the active connection, click on start / all programs / accessories / and double click on Control Panel.  Type IPCONFIG/all and see if you can identify this other connection of the computer.  It should provide more information about it for the purpose of identification.

    If your router is not secure, you must fix and this should solve the problem.  If your router is secure, you should change the password/key of the router to see if that solves the problem (and then you will need to change the key to all your wireless computers and devices to match the new).  If it still does not work, then come back and we will come with some other ideas (assuming that the manufacturer of access provider or router cannot help you with this).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    Hi lost,

    Try a boot minimum  If the problem goes away then it's just a matter of tracking down the culprit at the origin of the problem.   Follow the procedures described in the article.  Once found, remove, delete, disable or uninstall.  Once don't forget to reset yout system back to the normal state, as described in the procedures. If the problem occurs in clean mode then just restore the system to normal and reboot - this solution will not work.  If you are using XP, see:

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!
