Hello all,

I have an interesting issue which I hope I can get help with.

I'm running Windows 10 1909 Build 18363.535.

When my network profile is set to 'Private' I am unable to access the web interface of any of my local devices such as my router or NAS but I can ping them and access file shares. Public websites such as Google load without any issues. It only affects local devices.

What's interesting is if I change my network profile to 'Public' then all the issues are resolved. I can get access to all local devices and public websites. This puzzles me as 'Public' should be more restrictive than 'Private'.

I've tried various netsh and winsock reset commands and performed network and firewall resets.

The issue remains even if I turn off the firewall.

When switching from Private to Public, something else must be happening besides changing firewall rules. I'm leaning towards a routing issue where local requests are being sent to the wrong gateway or interface.

I'd appreciate any help you can give.

Many thanks
