I have two PCs both running Vista Home Premium (64-bit). They are each connected to the internet wirelessly. However in order to make file transfers between them go quicker they are also directly connected with a gigabit network cable. They are both assigned static IPs for the wired connection - 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2. The IPs for the wireless connection are in the 192.168.. range.
Every time Vista boots up it sets that wired network to Public, which means that neither PC can see the other one. I then have to change it on both computers to private before it can be used. When changing it to private it won't let me give the network a name.
Is there any way to force that network to start as private by default that doesn't involve buying extra hardware?
