I vaguely remember where this location but do you mean in Explorer, left you click on "Network". I also remember someone else posted this question before.

Can you give screenshot

oh no i know wht that is

it is not necessary a router but a shortcut to a quick connect...

inside the routers setup, ou should ave like a passkey tht you can give people.

with this passkey, the router with autorize i and send the correct instructions to the computer to configure the computer properly.

its basically the same thing as hitting thepretty green button on an old linksys router for quick connec but this is softwae base
