I'm a "noob", relatively speaking, when it comes to laptops and networks and probably computers in general. And especially Windows Vista!
I do have a router on my downstairs PC, so I get internet wirelessly. Messing around with my network settings on Vista on the laptop, I came across what appears to be a Network List. Basically, it listed all of the wireless networks I've EVER connected to: my router, wireless internet at school, my friends' networks, coffee shop ones, etc. I guess it saved them. It also said if they were managed or unmanaged. It also gave me the option to remove the networks.
Now, for the LIFE OF ME, I can't seem to access that window again! I've been asking everyone and they keep leading me to Vista's Control Panel. I keep getting led to either Manage Wireless Networks or Connect to a Network. NEITHER of those is what I'm looking for. I stumbled across this: ftp://ftp.bookpool.com/sc/41/0735622841_2.pdf, and the pictures and explanation basically says that you can get to this network list by Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet>View Internet Status and Tasks. Once you get to the View Internet Status and Tasks page, on the left pane under See Also is the heading Network List. For me, I don't have that heading.
If someone could tell me WHY I can't find this or HOW I can find this Network List is, I would be much obliged. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with anything at all, but I accessed that window BEFORE I enabled Windows Firewall, but I'm not sure if that's relevant. If anyone could tell me anything they know about this AT ALL, that'd be great.
Thanks in advance,
