wireless Network 2 in Network and Sharing Center

so I just went into my network and sharing center to turn off IPv6 connectivity on my laptop because it was affecting my ISP and all of a sudden I find out there is a wireless connection 2, any idea on what this is for because I have never seen it on that window and when I go and disable my regular wireless connection they both go away and when I re-enable the normal one both come back up if anybody knows what this is for please let me know I am attaching a screenshot
