How To Require Wireless Router To Ask For Password

  1. #11

    I think you misunderstand...I am not trying to keep it from connecting automatically. It is already set for manual connection each time I boot the computer and this indeed is what I want (manual connection, i.e., the "Connect automatically when this network is in range" box is NOT selected)


    It is storing my password...I don't want it to do this. I want it to ask for the password each time I connect.

    Change the password in your router, then connect to it making sure the box is not checked to automatically connect. If you are running your machine as an admin, you will not be able to keep the box blank, but, no user on the machine will see it...

    If I understand what you are saying, I can't keep it from remembering the password?

    BTW. I did what you recommended and it still remembers the password.

Require password
In Win 8 power options>advanced the "require a password on wake up" choice YES is greyed out, so it cannot be changed. How can this be set to NO? Note: This is not a USERPASSWORDS2 / Netplwiz issue, where one can check the box not to require a password. That box IS UNchecked. Thanks
