    That is exactly what I'm looking for, but I forgot to mention I'm on Win 8.1. Win 8.1 doesn't show a "Manage Wireless Networks" option. It does have a "Change adapter settings," option which would...
  3. How to get Windows to "forget" a wireless network?

    I installed a new router, which unlike the previous one, uses the same security password for both the 2.4gh and 5gh bands. I want to use the same SSIDs as the old router had.

    So one of my...

    Questions

    Thanks for the great article on using Win8 as a home server. Two questions:

    1. Do you actually have to use "D:" for the storage drives, or can it be another drive letter?

    2. You mention...

    I don't think Windows 7 Image backup will even allow you to use the same hard drive as the one you're backing up (maybe to another partition, but I don't think so).

    Whoops! I spoke too soon. After one--maybe two--successful bootups, the mouse isn't working again. I've now determined that if I wait almost 1 minute after the logon screen appears, Windows finds...
