How to change my home network from public to home

I was only using public networks for a while and got tired of having the computer ask every time what kind of network it was and set it to use public for all networks and then I got a network at home and now need to change my security settings to reflect that it's my home network (so I can set up file sharing and printer sharing on an old XP). How ever I don't want to use a LAN or USB cable to do it. Any Help Please.

Re: How to change my home network from public to home

  When yuo are logged into the network, click on Network center.  Then you will see Public Network, click on that.  It will allow you to change it a different network type.  Hope this helps you out.
