When does a network having a name like PCNAME_NETWORK get created automatically?

shayan8891 said having a name like PCNAME_NETWORK...that does not necessarily mean this is the exact name he is referring to.

Most likely any computer name can be substituted for PCNAME if I understand him correctly.

Yes I know that, I just want to know where he saw it exactly (that there's a "network" with a PC-NAME created).

From your reply...that was not obvious.

Can you tell us exactly where you see that "PCNAME_NETWORK" network?

My bad, if it's better now:
 

Can you tell us exactly where you see that kind of network being created (or showing)?

So it was a Wireless Network. Maybe your computer connected to it (or connected to another computer) back then and it was added.
