Try rebooting the whole shebang and see if the wayward Linksys reappears.

I don't think you connected to it wireless so you can probably relax.

Aha! Windows 7 uses LLTD to determine what kind of device it is. That's why you see routers and such with Windows 7 logos on them. They implement the LLTD protocol so that Windows can detect them and place them on the map.

If the router isn't responding correctly to the LLTD protocol it could be identified wrong or not at all.

What model NetGEAR did you say you have?

Perhaps I am worrying over nothing. It's just I'm such a logical person and to have this anomaly drives me insane. It must be a bug in Windows 7. I'm not sure of the Model of the Netgear as it isn't my router, but another family member's. Thanks everyone for the help! I think I might just let this one go.

Let me know if it ever clears up. I'm sure others would like to know.
