Thanks for your respond Shawn, I think i have set it up right but decided not merging those networks.

You're welcome.

Yeah, merging them is pretty much pointless unless the internet connection comes from two separate independent sources (ex: modems). That way if one modem fails, the other picks up.

Hi,

thank you very much for the annswer and sorry for my late answer.

Just for my understanding: After adding the information to the regestry (e.g. by the Set_Unidentified_Networks_Private script) all new networks should be automatically defined as home network. There should be no popup or anything else. Is this right?

Heres the screenshot of my reges´try key:

Thank you in advance

Alex

Hello Alex,

It will only automatically set "unidentified" networks as a Home network. You will still get the pop-up when you create a new network to ask what type of network you want it to be.

Hi,

thank you very much for your answer. This was helping me a lot. Is there a way to also stop this window popping up? The problem is e.g. when putting my small backup system (With Windows 7 Pro) to a unknown network and wants to log on it by remote desktop, then I only could do it after confirming home network on the system. If you have a monitor in use - no problem but without you do not have a chance :-(

Thanks in advance and Regards,

Alex

Alex,

I'm not aware of a way to do so, but you might post that in the "Network & Sharing" forum to see if someone may know of a way.

Hello Cyber, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The OPTION TWO section in the tutorial with the REG files will work in all editions of Windows 7.

Hello Brink,

Thanks for the post this solved a big problem I was having with my Window 7 Pro 64bit.

I'm still having a problem with Windows Home Premium 64-bit. I did option 2 and that change from a Public to a private network. but I still can't see the Network shares from a Linux.

From the Linux machine a I can see all my PC's (running XP, Vista, Windows 7 Pro 64.bit) but I can't seem to see the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit machine. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello JW, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm happy to hear that this tutorial was able to help you change it to a private network, but I would recommend to create a new thread on the other separate network shares from a Linux in the Network & Sharing forum area to get the best help on it.
