    name on 2 places


    Hello
    Please see my attachment and let me know if this is the way it should appear if I have a desktop and a laptop, hopefully on the same private network. In Win 7 the name only appeared once.
    If it is wrong could you please tell e how to correct it?
    Thank you

    If you are just using the same connection for the two of them then only ONE network connection should show up.

    Win 8 Pro - My desktop is connected to the router and the laptop is wireless. Right clicking the top name gives the option to share or not but nothing else.
    When I right click the name under wireless and click view connection properties, it shows my WPA - 2 with my key.
    I read where Win 8 is quite different than Win 7 regarding this feature.
    Would you be good enough to advise me as to how to adjust this properly, if necessary?
    Thank you
