    How To Require Wireless Router To Ask For Password

    I have my private wireless router setup so that when I select it the password is provided automatically.

    How do I force the system to ask for the password each time I connect?

    In the wireless properties for the connection is a box you can uncheck.

    here's what I did to get to wireless properties.

    1) Right click on the wireless icon in the system tray. Select "Open Network and Sharing Center"
    2) Double click on the name of my wireless connection to the right of "Connections:"
    3) Select "Wireless Properties" in the dialog box.
    4) In the "Connection" tab I see my password stored but no box to check/uncheck to prevent it from being stored.
    5) No box in the "Security" tab either.

    Left click on the network signal icon in the system tray, click once on your connection, it opens and shows connect/disconnect button, right click on the open box and select, View Connection Properties

    There is no "open" box. Just a "disconnect" box and nothing happens when I right click on it.

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
