This is my current setup, i Have a Netgear Modem / router with a netgear wireless router connect straight to the Modem,
All computers connect (hardwired) straight in to the wireless router, and the laptops connect wirelessly (obvoulsly ;))

Well anyway, i woke up and turned my computer on this morning, tried going on the internet and nothing would work,

i looked down at the little icon in the bottom right taskbar and it says Currently cnnect to "Home" (Private network) and Unidentified (Public network)

I only have 1 Lan port on mycomputer and that is plugged straight in to the wireless router,

The help thing tells me there is more than one network acctive and i need to diasbale it :)

I then go to diagnose and repair, and it says my ip is not valid...

In the end i have to disable both connections and enaable the adapter again to get it orking with out this unidentified network
I have to do this every time i turn on the computer,

What is it going on about as i am only connect to one network and ow do i stop this?


Btw, it also does it if im plugged straight in to the Modem / Router :) :)
