W8: How to change Public Network to Home Network

Postposted on Wed May 01, 2013 1:00 pm

The Public Network is stuck and I could not change it to Home Network. The network icon at the system tray shows "Internet Access" but I could not get anywhere in the Internet. I checked another W8 machine and found the same problem. There is no such problem with W7 machine on the same network.
Any suggestion is appreciated.

Thank you for your reply.
It turned out that culprit is firmware of the router which I updated to the latest version. The problem is resolved by undoing the firmware update.
