Symptoms

You may be unable to change or set your network connection location when attempting to connect to a network using a Windows 7-based computer. The location associated to the network connection may not be a clickable link.

Cause

This issue can occur if you have at inadvertently selected the checkbox beside the option to Treat all future networks that I connect to as public, and don’t ask me again. Once this option is set, you may be unable to change this setting.
