If the are any that shouldn't be there, disable, or delete them.
You said you don't have wireless, so you shouldn't see an adapter for that. You should only have 1 Local Area Connection.
Then you might have bluetooth, I'm not sure if you do.
If you're unsure of what to delete, post a screen shot and we'll help you
Thanks for reply friend. I'm already seem the adapters, has only one from local network with my router. I don't use bluetooth too. When I arrive in home, I'll post screen!

Thanks a lot.

No problem, we're here to help.
We await your screen shot

And just a side question...you don't happen to use AOL, do you?
I've seen from working on computers in the past (with Vista), that AOL creates a virtual network of sorts, and would show up in the network list.

No, I don't use AOL...I'm from Brazil and using a local Internet provider (for online Games, this provider sucks). AOL closed his office here...

Ok, just checking.
We're gonna need that screen shot that I asked for.
Also any more information about the "unknown" network would be good, like are there other computers in the house that auto connect to "unknown"? Did this happen when (if) your computer was running a different version of Windows?
And, from the network screen, you should be able to see what type of network it is, like wired, wireless, VPN, etc.

I have an Wireless Netgear router and I have connected:
1-PC (Wired)
2-Playstation 3 (Wired)
3-Notebook (Wireless)

In most times, I don't use any of this machines at the same time. This problem appers even when PS3 and Notebook are off. In Windows Vista I had this same problem(only sometimes, not always like Windows 7), but on WIndows XP not. I don't use VPN on Windows 7.
The only correct to this on Vista and Windows7 that I got is disabling network adapter and re-enabling again.
After my job I will post screenshot of this. Yesterday I can do 'cause I had problem on job and worked until late. Thanks again!

because it only happens in wifi when the other machines are off. I will bet you that it is a router problem (like dns, or config)

Those images are too small to make out any details, I can't see enough info.
Please make them bigger and repost
Don't stretch those ones, then it will be too pixlated. Just take new ones. Same screens though

Hit print screen (or Alt+print screen, to capture the currently active window), then open paint and paste the image. Save as a .png for best quality

Strange...I just uploaded ALT+Print screen into ImageShack. I was thinking when click on image will open at full size.

So, I will upload images again! Thanks for advise.
