Connected networks

Shows the networks to which network adapters are connected. After clicking the link below the network name, you will be prompted to select a protection type (strict or allowed) for the network you are connected to via your network adapter, or you can click the gear wheel GEAR to change this selection in Advanced setup. This setting defines how accessible your computer is to other computers on the network.

Clicking the Network adapters in lower right corner of the window allows you to view each network adapter and its assigned firewall profile and trusted zone. For more detailed information, see Network adapters.
