Right click on the network icon in the system tray, select "Network and
Sharing Center" then click on "Customize" at the right of your network name.

....or...

Go to "Start -> Control Panel" and click on "View network status and tasks"
then click on "Customize"...

When you click on Customize you have two options, Private or Public. Select
"Private" for a home or work network and "Public" for all others, ie. like a
public wireless hot spot or a friends house, etc. Click on "Help me choose"
or see this Cable Guy article for an explanation of Vista Network Location
Awareness.
