Delete Old Network Adapters/SSID Names
I have a minor problem that bothers me. I am running Windows 7 Professional. The name of my wireless network is "dd-wrt," but when I am connected it says I am connected to "dd-wrt 2." Obviously, the computer remembers connecting to dd-wrt in the past, but something has changed since then (maybe the password?), so it has had to name the new connection "dd-wrt 2." I can't find where I can get rid of the original dd-wrt, so it will not let me rename the "dd-wrt 2" to just "dd-wrt"
Also, I have a similar problem with my network connection. In the network connections list, it lists my Ethernet connection, bluetooth connection, and wireless connection 3. If I try to rename the "wireless connection 3" to just wireless connection, it says it cannot be renamed because that name already exist. This connection is not listed anywhere I can find, even when doing a search. How can I find the "Wireless Connection" and "Wireless Connection 2" so I can delete them and rename my "Wireless Connection 3?"

Go to Network and Sharing Center then look upper left side and choose "manage wireless connections" you can rename or adjust the SSID for each wireless connection there.
You can get rid of the extra wireless adaptors by going into Control Panel>Device Manager, go to "view" then choose "show hidden devices" after that go to network adaptors and you should be able to delate any extra network adaptor entries.
