    I have a question about networking. Can you set up a network without having a password or do you need one? I have a network setup but my nephew has 3 computers with no password and he can’t see his network In the explorer My network places. I have to go figure out why. I didn’t set the network up his father did so I don’t know what he did. do you have any Ideas what to check for?

      Yes you can setup a Network without a password.

      The most likely thing here is that when the network was setup File & printer Sharing wasn’t enabled so that part of the network doesn’t operate just like it should when it’s setup that way.
