Internet connection with USB 3G modem *10000?

The problem with Windows 7 and an USB 3G modem is that everytime I use it it creates a new connection, and next time I plug the modem in it will be like "Internett Modem Connection 11" and in the connection list I got many of them, how can I prevent this issue? And can I delete some of them by any chance?

It looks like you are using the built in dial up connection, and each time you disconnect the connection remains. These are bogus connections.

Have you tried using the software that comes with the 3g model, for example with sierra wireless cards there is the 3G Watcher.

I'm using the software that came with the 3g modem. But it insists on making the connection with the built in as well with the software. Still, got any ideas on where I can go delete them, or stop them from builing up on to the sky..

Remove the software from Add/Remove Programs. Remove the 3G modem then put it back in. You will then be promped to install drivers. Cancel the request. Open Device Management and install the driver by right clicking on the device, and by browsing to the driver folder to let it search for the drivers.
