How do I setup a home network using the spectrum router?

I recently had to replace my old Linksys router with a Spectrum router. Are there instructions on the Spectrum web site for creating a home network to allow 2 Windows 11 computers to do things like file and printer sharing?

    Hello @tgordon2

    With Windows 11, you can enable a private network with file and printer sharing in the Network and Internet settings on the devices themselves as long as they are on the same internet connection without having to create a separate network on the router. It should be under Settings > Network and Internet Settings > Advanced Network Settings > Advanced Sharing Settings > Expand Private Network.
