    I have a basic understanding of setting up a home LAN using a router:
    1) set all computers on the same workgroup
    2)enable file & printer sharing for microsoft networks
    3)set each computer to obtain IP & DNS automatically
    4)enable sharing on folders that I desire
    5)enable remote assistance (only if desired since high security risk)

    When I do step#4 for the first time on any computer I get a "shared
    documents properties" window that opens that says windows has disabled remote
    access as a security measure. If I wish to enable it then I should run
    Network Setup Wizard.
    What would this wizard do that I haven't already done? How would I navigate
    to the appropriate areas to manually enable it?
