Hello, welcome to JustAnswer my name is ***** ***** I'm one of the experts who will be assisting you today.
Can you explain what you mean by public network a little more in detail?
Is it a wireless network or a wired network?
And are you trying to make sure you are the only one who can directly access your modem?
Please reply using the box below.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Under Control Panel; Network and Internet; Network Sharing Centre
I set up a 'new connection or network' and chose Public or Private, I chose public but secured itThis is a wireless connectionI do want this open to others, using my password.Please note, I want to remove this 'network' and go back to the direct connection into my modem.
My question is How do I remove, not disable this network?

Thanks for clarifying, it depends on what version of Windows you have.
Do you know what version of Windows 7 you have?
Example: Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, etc
I can do it for you via a remote connection if you like, it might be a little easier for when we have to edit the group policies.

It depends on the version of Windows 7 that you have, there are more than one "Windows 7" - do you know which one you have?
