Question about Computers & Internet
I used to be prompted by my Acer computer for the passphrase for a network but somehow the settings of the properties must have changed for encryption type and security type and now the computer is trying to connect without asking me for a passphrase (password). How do I reset the properties that may have changed and to what so that the Acer asks me for a passphrase again? I think the security type is wep from observing by Toshiba laptop. I never connected to this network because I cannot get the passphrase for this secured network and I don't wish to. I have windows vista home premium. I have an Acer Extensa 5420-5038 laptop.
You nned to right click on the network icon in the taskbar, click connect to a network, then click on disconnect to release from current network then click connect on your network
