I seem to be having an issue with windows 7, ACM, and some network settings. I use an ATT Lightning (Sierra Wireless USB 305) with ATT Communications Manager (ACM) to log onto the net. I did a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit so I am getting used to all its features. I first noticed an issue when I loaded the latest version of ACM after installing windows 7. When I logged in, Windows did not ask me what kind of network this was (Home, Public, etc) as it did in the past and labeled itself as "unidentified public network" without asking my opinion on the matter. When I tried going through the "home group" setup to fix it, it would not allow me to do so as IPv6 was not installed for that particular connection. I opened up the properties for that connection and tried to install that protocol but it would not even show up in the choices (it actually didn't give me any choices to load). so, my question. How can I make my network a home network and how can i get IPv6 to load on that particular network setup. IPv6 shows up in the other 2 network setups, local area network and wireless network connection along with several other bells and whistles (link-layer topology, etc..)
Thanks and have a great day.....
