- Careful Chrome users, this search box might be "Not secure"

Can't get Windows Server 2008 to change the network from "Unknown Network" to something sane?
Try turning TCPIPv6 on the adapter in question.
OMG, (not to sound like a teenager, but you need to do this on disabled nic cards as well!) wtf, lol and any other tla you can think of....
- Wow, counting down the days till folks have to turn it back on :-)
Should be bug fixed by then eh?

You might need to enable a few services as well:

Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
TCP/IP Netbios helper

SSDP Discovery
UPnP Device Host

Oh, then fix the stupid firewall.
Zero administration, here we come!
