    Windows Forgets Network Type after Router Reboot


    I have set my router to reboot nightly. I do this to kick off all VPN users and force them to reconnect in the morning. Not important why here...there are work reasons.

    Whenever the router reboots, my internal (and external VPN) computers will still connect with the same network settings, but they reset the network type to Public. Also, the network name will have an added factor (DSB_2.4 becomes DSB_2.4 1, then DSB_2.4 2, DSB_2.4 3, DSB_2.4 4, etc.).

    Is this normal? Is there a way to force the "NEW" network (after router reboot) to be seen as the "OLD" and maintain a private status?

    :)
