Windows 7: Removing a computer from my network

Removing a computer from my network

I don't know much when it comes to networking computers & setting all that up, so I hope I'm making sense.

But here is what I would like help doing:
I just finished cleaning-up & refurbishing my parents computer. I have their computer connected to my router wirelessly due to a setup they need at their house.

I'm hoping to bring it back to them soon, they live about an hour away. So how do I remove their computer from my network & router?

You don't need to do anything special. Only affect to router is the DHCP lease and that will time out (after how long depends on router settings).

There`s nothing to remove, once it`s at their house your router is out of range.

But you can go into your router and see if you can remove it, but it`s nothing to worry about.

Type or to get to your router, you then need the password to get into the router.

You have to be physically connected to the router.
