It is hard to understand the topology of the network.
Your Internet connection seems to be coming into a Wireless Router. You are
Not connecting directly to the Internet but to the LAN side of the Router
(this is the correct way to do it).
On the other hand the other part of your network seems to be separate from
this LAN Router connection. 10.1.1.x means a different subnet and thus a
I do not know why your system is set this way but it indicates an unusual
topology for Home Network. and thus trouble in the connections.

On my new laprop with Vista Home Premium I have several network
connections for the different locations at home. Beside the wireless
internet connection I have a wired and a wireless connection to my
local network,, which ends up in a proxy server for the internet
My wireless connection directly to the internet (IP=192.168.1.51) is
correctly identified with the name of my wireless router.
The other network connections (IP 10.1.1.x) are identified as
"Unidentified network" and declared as "Public". I always have to
manually redefine it as "Private" but did not find a possibility to
change the name. Is there a way to permanently set the desired values?
I also have a problem that the connection to my XP business desktop
breaks down after a while. I have a mapping to a share (c$) which
works prefectly for a while but after some time (don't have enough
experience yet how long it actually takes) copying files from vista to
XP is not possible anymore, while the opposite direction is still OK.
I guess it cannot be a fierwall problem, I have turned off the Windows
firewall and use a desktop firewall that works OK all the time.
Thanks for any hint
