    Public or Private Changing


    Going nuts again! My puters that are ok with what is told on the net is correct. But, one is not, I click on properties when I bring up connections, does not bring a way to change the profile. 2004 must have changed something again. This is WFi which should mean nothing.

    If you search for changing to public or private, you will see what I mean

    Hi Ken

    So if you click Start > Settings > Network and Internet > on right hand side under status > Change Connections Properties

    you do not have option to make Private?


    Have you tried "Forgetting Network" and then re-establishing.

    Have you tried a Network Reset? (May require VPN's or other special comm software to be reconfigured).

    Hello Ken,

    In addition, you might see if you are able to change the network location using an option in the tutorial below.

    That is the problem selection of public/private is nowhere to be found. I did remove, reset and secpol.msc > Nada
    Looks like my favorite, repair install is what I will try next. Now where did I put that usb stick ?

    Happiness is Windows !!

    Sounds right.


    Surprised Option 4 of Brink's tutorial didn't work.


    I never install Feature updates in their first couple of months, only on non-critical devices.
