So you want to "reclassify" your network? There's a way to do this (if I remember correctly) ... You need to go to Configuration Panel > Network and Sharing Center ... There's an icon there, probably it's a bench when it's a public network, no click that icon, does it give you the option to change the sort of network now?

Is this windows 7?
First go to network sharing center, you should have home network listed click on that
Home networkIf you don't have Home setup then click on connect to network and choose home
apply and reboot then check your firewall
When I open windows firewall I see this
