having problems getting the setting back to a private network instead of it being a public one. When its on public you can't access the private network as somewhere the laptop owner (my parter) has managed to change a setting I think - and I am not sure where. Have tried under the network and sharing centre but cant find what I am looking for.... any ideas welcome.
