I have the same problem and cannot find/don't see the ad-hoc network that I created. I attempted to delete it but it's still there. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and I did save the network, too. The name of it is SETUP, created initially to test if I could print wirelessly to my printer. I can, only now I'd like to either modify it to give it a WEP key or I'd like to delete it then create a new one. Where do I go from here? Here is what I see on a few screens that have been mentioned in this post or on other forums talking about this problem: network and sharing center: http://i35.tinypic.com/25tjfxu.jpg Manage Adapter Settings: http://i34.tinypic.com/2k08m.jpg Manage Wireless Settings: http://i34.tinypic.com/5otta9.jpg

I'm not sure what the "Wireless Network Connection 2" is and I cannot delete either that one or the one next to it.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance you can email me at everlight@operamail.com if you prefer.

edit: Here's where the network that I am seeing and want to get rid of, I can connect to it: http://i37.tinypic.com/27y1w86.jpg
