Win XP Home edition seems to be configured out of the box for a home network. I have a few computers in my house that share the same router for the internet, but the computers have no need to connect to each other.
Because part of my network is wireless I would be more confortable turning off the unneeded file and printer sharing on each machine.
Also, is Netbios needed?
In Control Panel/Local Area Connection, it lists "Client for Microsoft Networks," and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks." Should I just uncheck these? Or uninstall them? If I do will anything else be affected?
Thanks for any replies.
