I searched the groups, read the how-tos, found things that seemed to help on the below, but had no luck finding exactly my problem or a solution. Tried a few ideas. Apologies if I duplicate. Here's my issue - have I a security problem and/or bad network setup?
I have a new laptop (Acer Aspire media) and connected to Belkin N+ router (using router DHCP). Windows 7 Home Premium, Atheros wireless card. All drivers
bang up to date and Win updates also. Router on newest firmware. I can connect to router and Internet with no obvious problem.
My wireless networks show 2 networks: Home, and an "Unidentified Wireless Network" that appears to be Public. BUT the Unidentified WN happens also to be my home - details are the same and security is in place. I have tried merging, deleting - can't do it. I did manage to delete it in "Manage Wireless Networks" but restart showed limited connection to my home network until this public one reappeared. I see from the group there has been a Win 7 bug or problem with this.
I'm not techie - I am worried this might be a security vulnerability. I can connect to the Internet OK so there are no connection issues. But when I run diagnostics I'm told I have a wireless problem and am connected to multiple networks. So just what is this parallel network? Should I worry?

Grateful for help. Thanks, Clive
