Windows 7: Network help!

01 Apr 2010   #1

Network help!

Hey, sorry if this post is not in the proper area. I just asume it should be under Network.

I have D-link Wua-2340 as a wireless adaptor for my windows 7. It has always worked fine up until now. Now it is connected to my regular network but is also trying to connect to another network. When i go into the list of available networks, this other network is not listed. Yet when i click on the internet tab in the right cornor it brings up a list with my network an this other network or just the other network.

I called my adaptor and router company and they say it is software problems :S an microsoft does not covor it under warranty, apparently they think it has to do with an update getting in the way of it working right...

Dont know what to do, this is making my internet slow.
Any help would be appreciated.

Look in your wireless adapter properties in the network and sharing center, and manage wireless adapters. Their should be a list of avalible networks and you should be able to select the unwanted one, and either delete it or set it to never connect it sounds like it is set to automatically connect when it is within range.

My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. ...
