I guess I was given the wrong information on multiple occasions , I just have one computer at home , there is no one else around .

I was always told to check the public network option since it has the most safety protocols but as you said it may be the wrong option .

Choose Public network for networks in public places (such as coffee shops or airports). This location is designed to keep your computer from being visible to other computers around you and to help protect your computer from any malicious software from the Internet. HomeGroup is not available on public networks, and network discovery is turned off. You should also choose this option if you're connected directly to the Internet without using a router, or if you have a mobile broadband connection.
