    The run command (WinKey+R or Run on Start) quickly gets you to Network Connections

    In the Run dialog, enter:
    ncpa.cpl

    There is a tool that resolved all of my Network Issues

    All,

    I finally found a great tool that someone else that was having the same type of problems found. Tweaking.com

    It is a free tool and just like everyone else I had the problems of:

    Private Network Not Connected

    Public Network Connected

    Unidentified Network

    Showed my Ethernet Connection was working properly but still couldn't access the internet

    Tried reboot

    Tried Troubleshoot repair

    Tried Registry Edit changes

    None of the above worked and this was my 3rd day to tray and resolve this issue because I couldn't find any help from Microsoft.

  4. Resolve network issues

    Thanks for that awesome tutorial!

    Crossing fingers and toes and all other appendages that I won't need it with the new Win10 box.

    But excellent to know it's there, just in case.
    Thanks for taking the time to pull together those steps (I got lost reading the very long threads).

    Cheers,
    MM
