I have a PC running Windows 10 professional. I have it on a wired LAN with that has no connection to the internet / outside world. Every computer on this LAN is assigned a static IP address in the range 192.168.3.x with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. As there is no connection to the internet, I have no router to act as a gateway. For this reason, I left the default gateway field in my network adapter (IPv4) configuration blank. With this setup, when I go to Network and Sharing Center, my network shows up as "Public". I would like to change it to "Private" so that I can take advantage of Network Discovery and File Sharing, but I cannot figure out to to do this.
If anyone can tell me how I can change this network connection from "Public" to "Private", I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks and best regards,
