    This is related to wifi but not it per se. I could not find the exact prefix.
    Today I arrive at a hotel with an ethernet jack.
    I plan to plug the router into it then connect the router and laptop hoping to obtain a bit more security than wifi.
    The "advanced sharing settings" page settings are confusing to me.
    I have turned off the first three and feel 2 and 3 should be off but do not know what to do with
    network discovery.
    My goal is to be able to communicate with the ethernet jack in the hotel as I do with the modem at home, and, not block it.
    Will I still be able to get internet if the first three are turned off? I do not know what to do with streaming either.
    I do no gaming or sharing but just exchange business letters which are personal.
    Could you please advise me as to items I should change. My pc skill level is not that advanced.
    Thank you
