      You need to be logged in via the admin account to change the settings in the LAN connection!

      i am the computer admin but i cant put a tick in shared files and printers in connection properties with ethernet connection, and the only way is to install all the client services, this adds passwords to the boot up. with using two wireless usb adpt all the ticks are in the connection properties 4 in all.

      the shared files are in the internet side of my network places, is this correct, or have i got issues with using my old wanadoo usb adapt

      cured the shared files.

      unistalled ethernet in device manager then used add hardware in controle panel. all the checks apeared in lan connection properties.

      but still shares files as internet.
