How can I view and configure my network properties?

The best way to view and configure your network properties is to access your computer’s Control Panel. You can do this by selecting the Start menu and typing “Control Panel” in the search bar. Once you have opened the Control Panel, select the Network and Sharing Center option. This will give you a variety of options for viewing and configuring your network properties.

The first option available in the Network and Sharing Centre is the View Your Active Networks section. This will allow you to view all of the networks your computer is currently connected to. From this section, you can also change the name of any of the networks you are on, as well as delete or add new ones.

The next section, Change Adapter Settings, will let you view and configure the settings for the different types of adapters, such as Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and Bluetooth. For each type, you can check and change the status of the connection and adjust the settings.

The Manage Wireless Networks section will let you change the specific settings of individual wireless networks. You can add new networks, delete existing ones, and set up settings like the network name, security type, and password. This section also allows you to change the settings for each network, such as the network name, encryption type, and password.

The Advanced Sharing Settings section will let you configure how your computer shares files with other computers on the network. You can also set up access controls to limit who can access shared files. You can also set up settings to allow certain computers to connect to your printer, allowing them to print from their own computers.

The last section is the Internet & Network settings. This section will let you configure settings related to the internet, such as changing your IP address, setting up a proxy server, and adjusting the settings for sharing files over the internet. This section will also allow you to configure a firewall to protect your computer from internet threats.

By using the different sections of the Network and Sharing Center, you can view and configure your network properties in a variety of ways. By making sure all of your settings are up to date, you can ensure that your computer is fully protected from any potential threats when it is connected to the internet.
