I used Windows XP as my earlier OS. I did network my PC and laptop easily in XP. Now I'm using Windows 7. When I try to network, it asked me a password. I didn't give any passwords.

Please give me a solution.

It is quite easy to create a network in window 7. You can create a home group easily. Just follow the given steps:

1. After installing windows it will prompt you make a network. Click on home group and it will take some time to configure your system.

Select a location for the Shire Network

2. Now select the files you want to share.

3. A new window will appear and will give you a password. You have to use this password to connect the other devices to the network.

Create a HomeGroup

And it’s all done here. Just three steps and you are done. But remember that on the entire PC in the network there should be a password protection. Means each user should have a password on his account. Without password Windows 7 will not make a network connection.

Hello,

The password protect option is automatically turned on in Windows, if you want to network the turn it off for network and sharing center which is accessible from here.

Internet access

Next click on advanced sharing settings.

What you will do is turn off password protect and turn on network discovery.Pasword Protect

YOU WILL DO THIS FOR HOMEWORK PROFILE.Home or Work Current Profile

THEN YOU WILL SET ALL COMPUTERS CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK TO HOME.

NETWORK TO HOME

In the end all the PC's should have this status.Network Home Connection

Hope this helps.
