    How to remove Multiple Network Connections?


    I have a pocket Wifi Device, however, it is NOT using Wifi connection, as I have it connected to my PC using an USB Cable. Every morning I turn on my PC, it creates a new network connection, for example "Network 7"

    How do I remove Network 1 to 6, and where are they located?

    And how do I stop it from happening, as it seems it will keep going to Network 8, then Network 9 and so on.

    Thanks:)

    That didn't work.

    Any other suggestions anyone?

    Whenever I turn on my PC in the morning, Windows 10 asks me if I want to share my Ethernet network, and then names it differetly each time, for example, it started with Network, then Network1, now it's up to Network 14.

    How do I stop this? And where are the Network 1 to Network 13 stored so I can delete them?

    Open regedit and search for ethernet 13, see what that finds? Should get you to the right key at least.

    Make a backup of the registry before changing though or create a System Restore Point.

    This command should list the interfaces defined.

    netsh interface show interface


    For me, it shows:

    Code:
    Admin State    State          Type             Interface Name
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Enabled        Connected      Dedicated        VirtualBox Host-Only Network
    Enabled        Disconnected   Dedicated        Wi-Fi
    Enabled        Connected      Dedicated        Ethernet
    Then use netsh delete profile interface= InterfaceName to delete the ones you don't want.

    I been able to delete them all, I went into this area using Regedit:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles

    However, how do I now STOP this happening again and again?
