Windows 7: Rename Network Connections in Windows 7

Your imageshack link doesn't work.

I have to ask you to reboot again and don't do your standard routine of disable/enable, but click on the "local area connection" of the unidentified network.

You have to find out what that is.

Make a few screenshots of what you see after you clicked it.

unknown network..

This was the only screenshot I could get... If I click on the Unidentified Public Network, I only get the screen that lets me change it's name and icon. That's not really of any use.. The other network, Rogers, is my ISP. That one is normal but it only works when I disable and re-enable my ethernet adapter, and only works when its the *only* network in the list.

I meant you had to click on the "local area connection" link (in blue) on the right side of the unidentified network

Ok,

Can you now do the same screenshots, but with the network working ok, after your disable/enable routine?

Ok, I see the problem.

I have to go eat now, I'm sorry, but I will be back in about 45 minutes.
If you have the patience and time, I'll see you then.
I think I can definitely solve your problem.

(Your Gateway, DNS and DCHP all have different IP's.
Very strange setup.)
