    Network & Sharing Center - missing items

    The Network Sharing Center does not display the network route map or any icons that are standard in W7. W8 advanced network settings also appear to offer fewer options, as do the choices under "Change Network Settings." The attachment displays what the N&S Center looks like here in W8.

    Note: These items are not available even after restoring a partition image that was created a year earlier, so perhaps this is as it should be?

    I don't have these choices either, this was present in Windows 7 from what I remember.

    Interesting. Maybe there's no problem after all in W8? Can others confirm that they see the same when opening Network and Sharing Center?
