Check this out.. Private and public network?

So this is my home pc that I run a private network on with my brothers computer and mine.. No idea now after a ran a tweak program I have public and private setup.

How do I just keep the private setting on rather then the public trash to? Also My jump drives no longer work on my computer but work on his.

Please help thanks!!

go to the Network and Sharing Center and change your network type to "Home".

There are three types

Home, Work, and Public

The firewall has different policies for each.
