what if you change your ssid... really you should do this anyway. Linksys is to generic of an ssid.

your previous post would change the ADAPTER name not NETWORK name. I fixed the linksys 2 issue by going through my registry and deleting everything that said linksys and the restarted the computer.. The "virtual profile" issure could be because of my internet connection sharing with a program called Connectify which is a wireless hotspot repeater program for windows 7

sorry for the late reply, but i'm glad your issue linksys 2 already fixed.

about the virtual profil,yap the virtual profileis cause by the connectify, that's a virtual wifi to turn PC into wifi access point.

new member looking for answers on ssid one and two resolved for me

i was having a heck of a time with ssid 1 and 2. 2 kept on restarting my browser and wouldn't allow some countries to unblock. i came here and got an idea. i went into my zhone router settings and clicked wireless/security, scrolled down to manual set ap, then noticed the network authentication wasn't right. changed that, put in my password and voila! i no longer have ssid 2 showing.

You could try this Hotfix next time it happens...or install it in case it comes back: Duplicate friendly names of network adapters are displayed in Windows
