Hi everyone.


"Gateway" suddenly showed up under my shared list today. I purchased my MacBook Pro less than 6 months ago, and this thing just popped up today.

I tried to Google to find out what it is, but I am absolutely tech stupid and can't seem to find the answers to my questions, other than learning that it's a sharing mechanism (I think).


All it says is:



Connection Failed"

with a little button beneath that says "Connect as" and when I click it, I am told that the connection failed.


What is this thing, exactly?

Should I be worried?

Should /  can I delete it?


Thanks in advance for your help and answers.
