This morning I received the update 220.127.116.11, and my network settings have been changed without my consent. The security suite put in "shared" my wifi network, that I had in "restricted". This is a tremendous fail that affects my safety, since most people live and do not want any connection possibility between computers. When I look this mistake, I went to adjust the network in "restricted" and reboot. But I was unpleasantly surprised when I saw that NIS returned it to "shared" network breach my orders.
If I make it clear that's happening would be very grateful to them because for me this is a very serious matter.

I just reboot again to see if everything was in order, and found that NIS has once again violating my orders to restrict the network, and has returned to some kind of "shared".
When I restrict the network, I do it correctly from the network map. NIS is a flaw I have noticed since updating to version 18.104.22.1687, with the initial version this did not happen

Another reboot and NIS refuses to keep my settings on my network restriction. I uninstalled NIS now, and not re-installing it until we get a solution to this major problem. This is incredible! I am really furious...

this is crazy, security suite refuses to save the settings to be put. The steps I follow to restrict the network are correct: Access the network map, and the editor of the confidence level of the network. Once there, I edit the value to "restricted" and give him to accept. This problem only happened since I've gotten the update 22.214.171.124, the previous version did not

What part of your network are you restricting? Between machines or between the machine and the router or modem?

I restrict my wi-fi network from the control panel of confidence (network map) and then select "restricted" This selection was stored properly and remained stable until this morning the update was 126.96.36.199. The problem comes from this latest update. NIS2010 not keep my settings, and also happened to autonomously select my network in "shared", where before the upgrade the default classification was "protected".
This afternoon I attended the support chat and I have facilitated an earlier version of NIS2010 (version 188.8.131.52) and with this version the problem does not happens. The adjustment default is set to "protected" and when I set to "restricted" this selection is stable.
Sorry for my previous tone, but I really angry because in the wi-fi network are many computers and is vital to me that there is no possibility of access to mine
Thanks for help me Delphinium

Try this and see if it helps worked for me.
Open Norton > Choose settings > Choose network settings > Scroll down to Smart Firewall > Advanced settings and click configure to the right > Look for Automatic File / Printer Sharing Control turn it OFF > Set your desired network security settings as usual.

Hello again, a few minutes ago has come to update again 184.108.40.206 and the network security problem repeats. As I explained in subsequent post, NIS2010 220.127.116.11 refuses to admit that I give orders, and put my network in "shared" against the adjustments that I perform from the panel of confidence.
This problem did not exist with previous versions, has appeared when the update came 18.104.22.168 I ask you please to Symantec experts to give me a quick solution to this, your program goes wrong and contrary to orders placed through their control panel.
On my computer I have a very important job, and it is essential that there is no possibility that a computer hooked to my network can access my computer.
Gascan thanks very much for your help, but this is work that should solve Symantec experts because our program does not work well from the last update. They must give a solution so that when a user makes an adjustment in NIS, the program obey and save the settings as you do
This is the ghraphic explanation of my problem:

What device is being shared? Have you also checked your Windows settings to make certain that nothing has changed as a result of Microsoft updates? Do you access that device?
You might also consider updating your product for free to the newest 2010 version. If you would like the links, on of us will provide them for you.

Hi delphinium, right from the beginning of this post I explained that I am using Norton Internet Security 2010, and that the problem appeared when the update came 22.214.171.124. While I have used previous versions of NIS2010 this problem did not happen, and I could restrict the network. Previous versions of NIS2010 default put my wi-fi network in "protected" and I then we changed to "restricted" being saved settings correctly.
The device appears as "sharing" is another computer on my network, but I do not want anything that can be shared between computers connected to my network.
NIS2010 has stopped obeying the established orders from the panel of trusted network settings, and this happens only with the update 126.96.36.199
Until he got that update I had no such problem
