Location resets on reboot RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have my media center extender connected directly to the ethernet port on my computer (not through a hub/switch/router)while the wireless network card provides internet.  I set the location on the network connection to the media center extender to "Home or Work" but every time I reboot it changes it back to "Public".  Is there any way to either make sure it stays on "Home or Work" or to exclude that network adapter from the firewall (since it's only connected to the extender)?

  • I'll refer you to the workaround I posted to this thread earlier today:

    I believe that you may have multiple active network adapters in the PC, which causes OneCare to default to Public mode as you are experiencing. Hopefully, this defect (in my opinion) in the location settings will be resolved in the near future for multiple network adapters.
