Everytime I disable SSID Broadcasting 2 extra wireless connections appear available connections list. (See wirelessconnections.jpg) One is blank and one is labeled Other Network. They disappear when I enable SSID Broadcasting. I am not sure why this is happening. Is this normal?

Are they your SSID's? If not they are just from wireless networks that are broadcasting SSID's don't worry about it.

They disappear whenever I enable SSID broadcasting and reappear whenever I disable it. The connection strength and settings are always the same as my wireless connection.

Thanks for the input, but this happens over and over. I will keep investigating.

What is the make and model of your wireless router? There is nothing to investigate aside from looking like these connections are not secure.
