    number 3


    1-I have tried to give thumbs up and only one allowed me to do so - it says I have to spread more reputation.

    **2-I do want to remove the 3 as you indicated but the tutorials show Win 7 not Win 8.1.
    Is there a way to do it with this 8.1 OS?

    3-I have personal network whereby my Ethernet cable goes from the gateway to the pc and another Ethernet cable goes to the printer from the gateway. Both the printer and the laptop communicate with the gateway. The desktop connects with an Ethernet cable to the gateway.

    4- I do not have a home group but the laptop, the desktop + printer are all on the same network.

    5- I was told to use private at home and public when out.

    **#2 is the most important!

    !!I just accomplished what the tutorial said and I cannot thank you all and Brink enough. It says network without the 3.

    I was confused if I should have left the dots as they were or checked "let user change" on the lst step but at 2nd glance understood to leave it alone.!

    Hi Peter,

    Yes, that was me because you had already given me a rep recently. Anyway, glad you got it fixed!
