I am using Windows 7 Pro on a Dell laptop, and frequently use the attwifi accesspoints at Starbucks. I've noticed that nearly every time I go to a different Starbucks, upon connection to the access point, I get the Network type (home/work/public) dialog, where I select public and the dialog creates a new network location like "attwifi 1" "attwifi 2" and so on.. I realize I can merge and delete the additional "attwifi x" locations, but am wondering WHY these get created?? Is windows tracking the AP MAC address to cause these additional network "locations" to be created? and is there any way to stop it from doing this?? no big deal if its just Windows trying to be secure.. My OS of choice is Ubuntu, but my work requires me to use Windows currently..
