Windows 7: Wireless connects to same network twice

10 Mar 2011   #1

Wireless connects to same network twice

On 2 different laptops, one running professional, the other running Home Media, the computer tries to connect to my home network twice. The most frequent example is when I try to connect wirelessly, in network connections I will see my network named two time. "Connected to Network, Network1"
When this happens I can not connect to the internet. I AM connected to the network and can see other PC's in the network. If I disable the device and re-enable it, this usually solves the issue.

Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix permanently?

Thanks for the help.
