Windows 7: Duplicate SSID, Sporadic connection

Duplicate SSID, Sporadic connection

Not sure how to describe this best.....I purchased a new laptop and router about a year ago. Six months ago we had a nearby lightning strike which runined the router. I replaced it with the exact same model. The laptop was unplugged at the time of the strike.
Ever since I replaced the router, I've had a sporadic wireless connection. I used the same SSID on the new router. Now I have what appears to be a duplicate connection. What I mean is the within "Manage Wireless Networks" the SSID appears as "XYZ" within the taskbar it appears as "XYZ 2".

Will a new SSID solve the problem?
Is there a conflict because I used the same SSID for 2 different routers? If so, where do I delete all of the prior networks I've connected to?

Any help is appreciated.

Kevin

You should just delete the old connections and create a new one.

Delete a network connection in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

For the sporadic connection problem please post the ipconfig/all form this machine.

Other problem may show up with Xirrus WiFi inspector, post screen shot of Xirrus.

You should also check that the latest firmware is running on the router. Check with the routers manufacturer website.
