Windows 7: linksys wrt54G shows 2 different network names

I didn't realise you have an extender. So basically both routes were sending out wifi names. Good to know its solved.

I had initially set up ext. without protection...small spread out community. When I added the extender...well...that didn't work anymore and should have known that I'd have to enter my security line in that too. All is well and that extender really boost the signal for me. Now I want something for my 6.0 home phones. Thx and take care

still showing to user names

Hello. I have this same problem that now I have my router set up encrypted, it shows (on 2 laptops in my house) there are 2 connections to the same profile. One of them can "not" be used. Like it is there along for the ride. So I select the other name and then enter my (long arsed) password and boom, it works. Why on earth are there 2 of the same network profiles? It has to be something to do with the Linksys router and the way I have something within, set up. Anyone?

Coming back on this thread, after some time and thought. I opened up my network connection a few days ago and noticed there was only the 1 network available of mine, as it should. If I go into the SSID and disable it within Linksys settings, should I still see this as an available network, or should it be invisible. I thought that is what SSID did.

Whatever the case, I have it disabled and I currently see my network on my laptop. (or could it be that is because I am connected to it?)

Does Windows save logs somewhere that shows folder names / file names?
Probably it doesn't and my question is a long shot - but I recently toasted a drive, and it had many folders and files which I have little memory of. I also never used one of those nice apps that makes a list. Any help appreciated. Much obliged. Tt
