    New network profile every USB hotspot connection


    Hi!
    I use to connect my PC to my smartphone via USB cable thus I'm able to use USB tethering hotspot.
    But everytime I connect my PC to my smartphone, a new network connection profile (Network 1, Network 2 and so on...) will be created in
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles

    Is it safe to delete those profiles? Is there any way to use the same Network number?

    Thanks!

    Ed,

    Do you know, "Is there any way to use the same Network number?" This topic is not covered in the tutorial link [other than, possibly, to forcibly delete the profile's Registry entry after every use].

    No I don't know of, nor can I find, any way to manage the number assignment for networks. Indeed the registry trick you mention will do it in a back-handed way by eliminating other numbers and letting the process start over. That's not quite the same thing, is it?
