Windows 8.1 Pro - Cisco VPN adapter is under Unidentified network - and does not send/recieve data

How can I chance the type of the network for the VPN adapter?
When following the below link (http://www.tekrevue.com/tip/change-network-location-windows-8/), I cannot see the adapter itself, only the group of Unidentified networks, and it doesn't change anything when i change the whole group to Public or Private.

Please assist, thanks.

May I ask why you plan to change it? Is that part of a troubleshooting process?
Is that supposed to work on 8.1 (does Cisco say so?)?

It suppose to work according to Cisco, but it doesn't forward data through the VPN connection/adapter.

Try it with another fresh System or fresh hyper-v win8.1 vm. If the error persists, call cisco Support.

I will try, but don't you think it'll be wiser to try and address the problem on the Windows 8.1 network level?

If cisco says, it "should work" on 8.1, then we have to rule out that your software environment is somehow interfering negatively. That's why normal troubleshooting should start by trying to reproduce the problem on a fresh, "naked" system.
