    Recently bought a new laptop but can not access the internet through my wireless home network. On checking in Network and Connection Centre it show it as "Public" so that is why I guess owing to the firewall restriction. The problem is when I change it to "Private" , then re-boot, it has defaulted again back to "Public" so hence still not able to connect to the net as it shows "Limited Connectivity, Local only".

    Any help please as to why it won't keep the change at"Private" and defaults back to "Public" ?
