Windows 7: Couple of questions about wifi

23 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Couple of questions about wifi

1.Is there is any point of user name and password(maybe security reasons)if the wifi router is connected to my pc and I'm the one one who uses it(it's good to have a password for the network but what about the password for configuring the router).
And if it's good to have a password,is there is some way to automatically connect without typing it(some command line\shortcut with something in it)

The router is TP-Link
Model No. TL-WR740N / TL-WR740ND

2.My setup is like pc connected to the router through lan card and another pc using wireless adapter.The question is,can I make a connection between both pcs(WinXP SP3 x86 and Win7 Ultimate SP1 x64)

3.Is there is a way to remove the wireless adapter from the "safety remove hardware" list(on WinXP...that's where the adapter is)

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

My experience with WinXP and W7: even though I shared folders and files on both computers, even with hard-wire connection, W7 could see and work with XP folders and files [copy, move, delete, etc], WXP rarely "saw" W7 folders & files, never was able to copy, move, delete, etc anything on W7 computer. Wireless? after some attempt, I gave up on wireless between W7 & WXP. There are probably some work-arounds, I simply did not know what they were/are.

I'm trying to figure your question set about wifi router username/password. I'm using AT&T's Netgear 7550, modem/router/wifi combination, and I only have to enter the hard-set password if I'm going into the Wifi configuration box. My only beginning logon is password for Win7Pro OS. Tell me more

A couple of questions!
1. Fan During my build, I accidentally pulled the fan wires from from the (molex?) connector. When making contact in the right way, the wires are still able to make the fan spin so I know it is definitely salvageable. May anyone suggest a way to fix this, or at least keep the wires in contact with...

1) When I turn off my PC at night, which I do every night, should i turn the power button on the back off my PSU off as well? Or should this be left on? 2) My hard drive has recently begun to make very light, and what seems like, scratching noises. It only seems to happen when data is being...
