The steps to change the network type by editing the Windows Registrar are as follows,
- Locate the following Registrar key,
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE –> SOFTWARE –> Microsoft –> Windows NT –> CurrentVersion –> NetworkList –> Profiles
- Search or go through each profile to locate the profile that corresponds to the network adapter you wish to change the network type. I finds that it is easy to locate the adapter based on the "Description" field.
- Then change the
Categoryvalue. Set the value as
0to assign the adapter as a "Public" network,
1a "Private" network, and
2a "Domain" network.
