To enable PAP-based authentication, you must do the following:

1. Enable PAP as an authentication protocol on the remote access server. For information about a default setting on a particular NAS, see your NAS documentation. On the Routing and Remote Access service, PAP is disabled by default.

2. Enable PAP on the appropriate remote access policy. PAP is disabled by default.

3. Enable PAP on a remote access client.

Make sure your settings are correct in network sharing

Control Panel -> Network And Sharing Center -> Advanced sharing options

turn on network discovery under the public tab, and home and work tab. And make sure the password is turned on to.

you should move to the UK. At 18 you can legally drink! lol
However 99% of 18 year olds here are way to immature to drink!

Try this out right quick:

Control Panel -> Windows Firewall -> Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall

Scan that list and see if your NAT is in there.
