ICS and unidentified network RRS feed

  • คำถาม

  • I'm having two NICs and using ICS to share my internet connection (NIC 1) to the rest of the network (NIC 2). Of course ICS is assigning a static IP to NIC 2, which makes the whole home-network connected to NIC 2 an "unidentified network". Why does Win 7 classify NIC 2 as unidentified network and thus gives it the PUBLIC profile unless you change this in secpol.msc?
    I really see no reasoning for such behavior.

    Here are some suggestions you can try:


    1. Refresh IP address.


    a. Click the Start Button, type "cmd" (without quotation marks), in the search result list, right click on Cmd.exe and select Run as administrator.


    Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.


    b. In the popup window, type the following commands and press Enter one by one:


    ipconfig /release

    ipconfig /renew


    Then, the new IP address will be obtained.


    2. Configure the gateway to the IP address of the client computer (For example:, the IP address assigned by ICS)
