Hello Aram,

Have you tried this method below to change it?

Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network


Could you repost your screenshot using the method below instead?

Hello Aram, Often times when this problem comes up it's because of a secondary default gateway problem which occurs due to either the router or the network adaptor being used, or a combination of the two slightly outdated hardware's being used.

The easy fix is to manually enter the Default Gateway in your Windows 7 Network Adapter’s IPv4 settings. The link below shows you how to do it.

Ok, I see what you mean now. This may be able to help to change the unidentified network from public to private then.
