    Home network tips needed

    One at a time, depending on a multitude of things, but to keep it simple (and assuming both parties are using best practice) The device will attempt to connect at the highest frequency available (that it supports). That depends on the device. My AC APs do both but do not require seperate SSIDs.

    How to leave a workgroup?

    They can, but it will ask you to authenticate as a user that does have access to those resources.

    How to leave a workgroup?

    Yeah thats what I mean, Just that technically speaking it is part of a "group". Of course if your the only one, then none of the functionality it provides matters, and maybe thats what the OP wants. In which case It might be something for him to consider.

    How to leave a workgroup?

    Eh thats not exactly right. That ties into what I said here. Pardon me for not being great at explaining this. If you follow that guide, you are doing what I just quoted. What is actually happening though is that "workgroup" is sometimes reffered to as both a name and a function. You can...

    How to leave a workgroup?

    No. You are not understanding this technology. Audit mode is the default regardless of if you select it in the sysprep GUI or not. This allows you to reboot the machine if a software installation requires it. You can just read the technical article I linked regarding sysprep. However none of...

    How to leave a workgroup?

    How to leave a workgroup?

    You cant. A workgroup is not the same as a home group. workgroup has been around since like windows 98. Home group is what allowed you to share random things with other machines on your network more easily. Workgroup has always existed. EDIT:: In your case it appears that the underlying...

    Os Armor - a must have security software

    I see we are still incapable of staying on topic. I suggest making a thread about the intricacies of workgroups or even just basic networking judging by some of the responses. If you want to continue talking about OSArmor itself (or by extension software like it) by all means PM me.

    Os Armor - a must have security software

    Thats not a big issue, I have to write technical documentation for my masters. Time though is a whole other matter. Right now I'm doing FW and network based intrusions. But I should visit AV again. I can try and focus it around windows. We're getting a bit too off topic for the sake of this...

    Os Armor - a must have security software

    you dont "scan a workgroup" You can scan your IP address range with something like Advanced IP scanner or Angry IP scanner to see if their are un-authorized devices on your network. I personally use advanced IP and their are others then the ones I listed of course...
