2 networks

Hi friends, I need some help!

When I made logon on Windows 7, Windows connect on 2 networks ("Virtua" and "unknown"). 'Cause of this, my internet broadband don't work.

Why windows connect in "unknown" network automatic? How to fix it?

Thanks a lot!

So you are wired and have your network and an "unknown" network? could you look at the unknown and right click it, see what is in properties. Im assuming your network is virtua and you want to stop auto log to unknown?

Thats the point! I have only one adapter showing on Windows and only one and wired nwtwork. I don't understand why Windows connect automatic on this "unknow" network and I wanto to stop.

Where I can see this properties? In main screen of Manage Network only show "Connect Various Networks".

Thanks again!

In the icon of System Try side of clock, show a icon of network with "!". So, I click with right button and Manage Network. So, in the next window appears 2 networks.

To correct this, I have to desactive the network adapter and active it again. After done this, Windows connect only on Virtua network and works fine.

You have a router? if so have you re-booted it?

that "unkown" network may just be a phantom network.

Jackal, right-click the network icon on the system tray, and choose "Open Network and Sharing Center"
Then on the right, choose "Change Adapter Settings"
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
