Windows 7: Public Network

Public Network

I have come accross a problem with a pc that sees every network as a Public Network, so it will not connect directly to a Broadband supplier. Is there any way to reset this without reinstalling the O/S?

Thanks Chev65, it worked a treat, although I couldn't get the other pc's (XP) to connect at the same time through a group, so I had to leave them with just direct internet connection.
