I'd a home network set up between two desktop PCs which both have Windows XP Pro SP2. I'm planning to buy a new PC and give one of the old PCs to my father. How could I delete (uninstall) the network-setup in the two PCs before I take one of them to my father's house?

Thanks for helping.

My first question is why you'd want to do so? Is he living within the wireless range perhaps? Does he have a network you'll be adding it into?

Un plug it. Once it is not connected to your network then how it is setup will not matter. Lots of home and business networks across the nation are all setup as the same workgroup names of "workgroup" or "mshome" nothing bad happens because of it.

Take out the Network Card (or disable the Onboard card) and the network would go away.

However if you would explain you “real” concern may be you would get better help.

Sorry for not responding for two days because I'd been away.

My real concern is that I'm going to replace one of my old PCs with a new one and I'm not sure a network previously set up between the two old PCs matters or not, so I'm thinking of uninstalling the network setup before connecting my new PC.

Thanks for your reply and help.

When you move it just run the network connection wizard again. If you want to change it before you move it right click the My Computer Icon and select properties. Then go to the computer name tab and click the change button at the button. Change the workgroup and computer name if you wish. If you have it setup to use a static IP address go back into network properties and change it back to automatically obtain an ipaddress. If you have shared folders setup you may want to go and remove/delete them.

Sorry for my late reply because I'd been very busy setting up my new PC.

Thanks for your help. I did what you suggested and everything is properly done.
