Another Router Question/"network Magic" Trial

Recommended Posts

Linksys Router came with a trial version of Network Magic, which is supposed to expire in 5 days, according to the box that pops up when I start my computer. Not interested in purchasing this gadget--the only sharing we do on our computers is sharing the internet connection, hence the router purchase!

Can I go ahead and remove Network Magic through Add/Remove Programs? Most importantly, will the router still work OK??? Don't need to hear Daughter wailing that she can't get her laptop online. That would be bad. :blink: Happy kids=Happy momma=Happy family. :thumbsup:

Thanks much,

Liz

I have never used this program on my Linksys and all 4 of my PC's have no problem getting on line. The kids and grandkids come over here with their laptops and they don't have a problem either. Delete it.

With Network Magic you can:

Easily add new computers, printers and devices to your network

Share printers and files among computers in your network running different versions of Windows

Monitor and repair your network

Protect against wireless network intruders

View your entire network on the network map

All of this can be done without this program pretty easy.

Here is a link if you have any problems removing it. Read the first 2 or 3 for some help.
