    Had two PCs connected through a router on a wired peer to peer network. There is also a connection to a cable modem, and the PC has a 10/100 SMC 1211TX card.

    Experiencing some browser problems, and would like to do away with the peer to peer network. The second PC is not even used any longer.

    How is this accomplished (getting rid of the network)?

    If there is some website out there with some instructions? Would appreciate any guidance. Not knowledgeable about networks.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    If you were sharing files between the two. Just turn off File and Print sharing. Other than it doesn't make much a difference what you od.

    :p

    Hey, on an Ethernet 10/100 card with 3 lights in back.

    Aren't those lights supposed to be on, even if there is no cable connected to it, or do the light come on when the cable is hooked up?

    No lights with no cable as a rule. Usually lights for 10/100 speed, activity, and link integrity. I think my Netgear cards have 5 LED's, and all are off when I yank the cable.
