Hello, Friends! I have a really pesky problem. I have Win 10 on both my laptop and my desktop. Somehow, in the last two days, the Private Network configuration on my laptop got screwed up and I have no Internet access. Here. on my Desktop, part of the same Private Network, all is well (thank goodness). Somehow, I cannot seem to set my laptop's network access to my main wireless router's Private Network params.
On my laptop, in Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center, I see: "Unidentified Network public network" on the left pane. on the right pane, I see "no network access" and WiFi (AC1Y/G5CPJ) as the access type. WiFi is the wireless router inside my laptop and AC1Y/G5CPJ is the name of the network account I established in the Wireless Router I have attached to my ISP. The network account IS private and IS passwork-protected.
On my Desktop, in Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center, I see in the left pane "AC1Y/G5CPJ Private Network" and in the right pane "Access Type - Internet, Homegroup - Joined, Connections - AC1Y/G5CPJ" Now, THIS is correct and working just as it should.
So....How do I get rid of the "unidentified network public network" on my laptop? Somehow, I have to make access to my Private network, but how? And, I seem to have lost the homegroup on my laptop, too. No idea how that happened. At least my laptop sees my AC1Y/G5CPJ network account on my main wireless router.
Please, gurus, where do I go in Control Panel on my laptop to set this right? I am really puzzles.
Thanks very much
Mount Airy, NC
