    First, as a general rule make sure that you have all the latest drivers for all your network devices, including the latest firmware for your router.
    Then use the ipconfig /all command from the command prompt and inspect the ip addressing information that your NIC is using. Copy and paste it into your next post so we can take and look and possibly make additional suggestions.
    As a last resort you may try removing the NIC from device manager and rebooting the machine to see if that may give you the opportunity to select "Home" or "Work" when configuring the new network.

    Hoe it will work in changing public network into home network in Windows 8.
