IIRC you need to assign a network type (domain/private/public) manually in Vista once.

that's my mistake not home network, its private network.
in NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER  its shows unidentified network (private network). its in workgroup show only 2 option is available either private or public.

Since you already have and use Windows 7, I suggest you forget about Vista.and remove it from your PC. In less than an Year it will be EOL anyway with no support from m$. Any PC still running Vista today should be upgraded to another OS as soon as possible, before the time has run out and Vista has gone.

I won't chime in into that "soon obsolete" chorus, but Vista is full of bugs and unwanted features, so I have to recommend to change because of that. Network Locations are one of those "features". Detection runs much smoother in W7 and improved with W10 (don't consider W8[.1]). W10 is definitely an improvement over Vista, but W7 has proven to work great too.
