Whenever I connect through mobile broadband inside my modem in Windows 7, the dialog

Define Network Type

appears, showing a new network name (which is the carrier) appended with an incremental number. How do I delete the old connections and stop showing the Define Network Type for this 3G connection only? I searched in registry but no entry matches the network name.

Also, if I run ipconfig I receive a lot of disconnected isatap entries.

Tangentially germane: I have hundreds of those entries on one of my test XP rigs but they increment only when I insert a new device, not when I'm inserting a previously installed device. – goblinbox Feb 9 '12 at 21:19
