Is there a way to reset this prompt so the  user sees it again or how can I change the settings after you user has selected them ??


Thanks !

Yeah this is easy.

Click the Windows Icon (start button)

Type Network and Sharing Center

Open Network and Sharing Center

Below the name of the network, you will see the network type in blue. Click the type and it will open that dialog box.

Select your new choice! Done and done.

To answer your other question is that the only way to make the "system prompt" the user again, would likely require a registry edit to delete the reference to this network and the selection marking it.  Have not looked, so can not provide you with the correct location where this can be found.

Deleting the record would likely prompt the individual the next time they connect to this network for the type of the network to which they just connected.

Or you could simply delete the network in your managing network connections settings. Then you can reset it up next time you connect.

Messing with the registry should always be a last resort.
