So, what should I do to cause to Windows the request of the choice of the network profile when the user reconnects to a current Ethernet or Wireless network?

Thanks

What I posted above, but there's nothing you can do for Ethernet (wired).

A curiosity: By using the netsh command or by editing the Windows registry, how do I cause to Windows the request of the choice of the network category when the user reconnects to the current Ethernet or Wireless network?

Thanks

How do I reset the parameters, related to the category of a network in use, saved by the NLA service so that Windows displays again the choice window of the network category when the user will have to reconnect to this network?

Thanks

If you are referring to the "network location", then the tutorial below can help show you how to change it.

You can't for Ethernet, but can change it when you like.

For wireless, you would just need to delete the wireless profile. You will be asked what network location to use when you setup and connect to the wireless network again.

In an Ethernet connection in use, if I delete the Category item in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles\<Current_network_GUID> key and I restart the system, when the user will attempt to connect to this Ethernet network, Windows will display the choice window of the network location type?
