    Assign different network profiles (locations) for Ethernet and Wi-Fi


    I have tried to set my notebook to use the Private network profile (location) for Ethernet and use the Public network profile for Wi-Fi. But it turns out that it's impossible. When the network profile is changed for one of them, the other also changes automatically to use the same profile.

    The notebook is connected to my ISP's broadband VTU-R with network cables. The private IP of the VTU-R is The private IP of the notebook's network card is manually set to (different segment) with the VTU-R being the default gateway.

    The VTU-R also supports Wi-Fi. When Wi-Fi connection is established, the notebook obtains its Internet IP automatically.

    Is it possible to assign different profiles for Ethernet and Wi-Fi respectively?

    The OS of the notebook is Windows 10 Pro, version 1709, build 16299.402.
