Can anyone please tell me why, when connecting wirelessly under Windows 7, to a wireless access point I am unable to change the "Network Type" from Public to Home, thus no connection to the Internet is allowed? I cannot change any of the parameters of the network at all. Under XP on the same network I have no problems at all.
I have set up three access points by simply adding additional wireless modems (of the same brand as the primary modem), turning off DCHP and U PnP and assigning a unique IP address, to avoid DCHP conflicts (as I understood it).
Which change would I have to make to the access points such that Windows 7 fully recognises each access point and allow me to assign them to type "Home"?
I don't have the units here, I was helping a friend, so am unable to currently provide specific details beyond the fact that they are new(ish) Netgear modems. Thank you.
