  2. Right click on the network icon in the system tray, select "Network and
    Sharing Center" then click on "Customize" at the right of your network name.

    ....or...

    Go to "Start -> Control Panel" and click on "View network status and tasks"
    then click on "Customize"...

    cannot find a way to do so. when i do what is suggested, there is n
    option to select what kind of location this is...follow

    to get one of my notebooks (all running vista) on the same page as th

  4. When you click on Customize you have two options, Private or Public. Select
    "Private" for a home or work network and "Public" for all others, ie. like a
    public wireless hot spot or a friends house, etc. Click on "Help me choose"
    or see this Cable Guy article for an explanation of Vista Network Location
    Awareness.
