Hi,

I'm not sure if it is possible, but whenever I connect to the internet, the 'Set network Location' keeps popping up and the 'Network' number keeps on going up each time. For example, the first one is 'Network', the next time it will be 'Network 2' then, 'Network 3' and so on. Right now its already on 'Network 14'. Is there anyway to reset it and get it back to just 'Network'? Because I'll be connecting to the internet several times a day, and if this keeps up, I'll probably be seeing "Network 33" at the end of the month.

I have set the network location each time it comes up, but when I disconnect and then reconnect to the internet, it disappears and ask me again. I'm using Windows 7.

Thanks.

are you saving the profile - just stop saving the profile each time

is this wireless ?

have a look at the wireless profiles and you can delete those and start again, save just one and then use that as the preferred connection

- delete the wireless profiles
Start> control Panel> classic view> network and sharing center> manage wireless networks

Delete the profiles
you will then have to enter the wireless security key for any networks you connect to - so make sure you know the correct password , and not using an incorrect password at all

not sure what to suggest for a USB tethering connection issue, no experience of that - hopefully someone else will have a suggestion
