    Hello. I just bought a new notebook with windows 7 installed. I really like it and setting up and configuring is a breeze. Somehow though, There are multiple instances of my router listed in the "wireless network connection" window and are listed such as my router 1, my router 1 2, my router 1 2 3 Each one shows a full signal. How do I go about removing these entry's?

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends how they were added and whether they are actually your router and not next door's.
    Can you post a screen shot of where they are showing, or describe the screen?

    cheers, Paul

    Open up the Network and Sharing Center, Manage Wireless Adapters on left, then remove the extra connections. Notice on your shot there is only one connection that shows connected. It's hard to say how the other 3 were added, but you should be able to remove them easily. You can also rename the one you wish to keep to anything you wish.
