I connected to my corporate secure wireless G network and accidentally selected "public" network as the type instead of Work network in the Win7 Network and Sharing Center. I may have inadvertently checked the option to "treat all new connections as public and no longer ask" as well.
I obtain a propert ip addrss and configuration, but no internet connectivity. The ntework profile is designated public and does not allow me to change it. I have deleted the connection and restarted the machine, but the the connection continues to be defined as public with no Internet when I manually add it. I have added other connections and changed the state, but this one seems stuck.
Is there a way to either:
1. Restore the setting to force the Wizard to prompt for a prfile type when adding a new connection or
2. Remove and reinstall the Network and Sharing Control panel so it reverts back to original settings (wihout a complet OS install)?
3. Manually remove the secure connection in a way that forces all remnants of the connection to be removed.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
