Windows 7: Connected to one network but showing two connections!

Connected to one network but showing two connections!

I am facing a weird problem, i am connected to only one network via Ethernet cable, but it shows that i am connected to two and one is unidentified.
I am attaching the screenshot below
when i did "ipconfig" i saw that there are "two default gateways"
Thats weird! Please tell me how to delete the unidentified network? I would also uninstall drivers if necessary, but there might be some other solution.

Are you using a static IP address?

In your TCP/IP settings can you make sure that your local area connection is obtaining an address automatically.

If that doesn't resolve your issue then can you please upload a full ipconfig screenshot (ipconfig /all) so we can look further into this.

Also, do any other machines on the network experience this symptom?

Many Thanks,
Josh

Thanks for the fast reply
In TCP/IP settings, its obtaining IP automatically but i think my ISP has provided static IP from their side because whenever i google for "whats my ip" i get same result unless there is problem on their side(router)
And also i have windows 8 dual boot in my laptop, but i dont see two networks over there; it just shows 1 network and 1 default gateway!
Here is the screenshot for "ipconfig /all"

I am glad that you have found a solution to your problem! Out of curiosity did you place the static route yourself? Typically, multiple default gateways are given in IPv4 from a static configuration... I didn't expect a static route to result in this... Learned something new!

Have a nice day!
