Default Re: WIN8 homegroup password not recognized

On my PC AltGr is the key next to the space bar - I think it's sometimes known as Alt Green.

I was going to follow the link in post #9. The article seems to indicate that you can more easily share the c-drives. I came across this disclaimer:

Note: Make sure that you are using a NAT-Router (applies to most any router) as a medium to access the internet if you wish to use this method. Otherwise, you might release your files not only to your local network, but to the whole internet


I am using a Westell A90 model modem. Is this a NAT router? Is this safe?

Re NAT router - this article explains how you can find out if your router is NAT.
