    i recently changed my router so I need to set up again but I still also carry the XP laptop as a back up computer. Is it safe to put my router name and password for this XP computer? I know it's risky but I use sandboxie whenever I use the Internet browser. Would it be safe to enter on this computer? I have a feeling my internet got slower after I tried to log in router from that computer but it didn't ask me for my password so I didn't enter and all it keeps saying is "status-validating" and that's it, I'm confused. I don't even know just by clicking on my wifi name, if it affected my internet in any way.
