Windows 7 - Reset Network location

Asked By Remozilla on 30-Jan-09 02:05 PM
I want to reset my network location (not sure it was correct to begin
with on initial setup) but cannot find how to do this.  It is for my
home network.  Can anyone guide me through this?

Right click on the network icon in the system tray, select "Network and
Sharing Center" then click on "Customize" at the right of your network name.

...or...

Go to "Start -> Control Panel" and click on "View network status and tasks"
then click on "Customize"...

what i want to do is reset the location for it (home, work, public)  but
cannot find a way to do so.  when i do what is suggested, there is no
option to select what kind of location this is...follow?

here is my problem.  my network is secured and private but i'm not able
to get one of my notebooks (all running vista) on the same page as the
other computers.  none of the other computers can access this notebook
and when the notebook is highlighted, this is the only one that doesn't
show the location for it.  but the notebook can access the other
computers on the network.  any other ideas???

When you click on Customize you have two options, Private or Public. Select
public wireless hot spot or a friends house, etc. Click on "Help me choose"
or see this Cable Guy article for an explanation of Vista Network Location
Awareness.
