Try this.

1) Disable all network adapters other than the one where you cant change the network type.
2) In Network and sharing center, select "choose homegroup and sharing options".
3) Click on "what is a network location?"
4) Select Home.
5) Reenable other adapters.

Was your network ever set as Home? If so how long ago?

What happens when you click on "what is a network location" in the yellow box?

to be completely honest, i never paid attention, i got this laptop off of a friend (traded this a year ago for samsung DLP 3-D) i travel and couldn't bring the TV with me, needed a new laptop, im in and out of hotels so i never really paid it much attention until now, im actually home for a few months and noticed with the new wifi printer i have that its not working right. but after testing this on my two routers (seperate of course not at the same time) and at the local bar, the club house at my apt complex and a starbucks it never comes up as an option to choose home/work/public.. like its just missing or something isn't clicking

I've been getting internet connection on and off all day today, thinking it was just Comcast. But every time I went to look at the modem, it was still functioning fine, and the router's local status site told me it was working fine. Well, now it's not working. I tried restoring back to an old...
