Not a big deal ..i hope , but i have recently noticed in Exploring my Drive that when i click on "Network" 

Alway`s  shown is my Modem Router listed as Tplink TD - W8960N which is what i run - so thats fine.

 

Yet sometimes,  i notice not always another listed as TD - W8968 which i never have owned or used.

 

I have updated Firmware , changed password for access and Wireless Key etc on the TD - W8960N.

 

The other still shows up occasionally { the TD - W8968 } , and why i dont know ? should i be worried that someone is compromising my Modem/Router.

Both of those are routers.  Have you ever had another router connected to this computer?

dc3 - I may have in the past had other routers connected to setup for others before installing at premises - but cant really remember.

 

I Solved the Recurring issue , by way of Merge or Delete Network Locations , i deleted the ones present and not being used , and kept my Network and Wireless and all seems to be running ok now.

 

If reoccurs i will repost , but i think it has be resolved.

That is why I had asked about the other router being recognized.  You did pretty much what I would have suggested after getting this information.

 

Glad to hear you got it sorted out. :thumbup2:

It still came back later the next day , so again we start chasing it.

 

2 days later success with rolling back the driver on - Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter.

I upgraded it earlier when my wifi was disconnecting for no reason a month or so ago.

 

So all good and no more network issues or wifi dropouts for over a week.

Problem Solved.
