I have a ADSL Wireless Router (ZTE ZXV10 W300) connected to internet. My laptop is connected to the router via wireless network. When I check the Network Map (in Windows 7) it shows another wireless router and a computer (which I do not own) and Routers are connected through an Unknown device.

Green box shows the part I can identify

I guessed this router is somewhere in my neighbourhood, so to disconnect it I restarted my router and even changed the wireless network shared key, but it keeps showing in my network map..

Note: I tried to ping the Unknown pc IP, but it can not be reachable.

Is the routers really connected each other? how to disconnect this unknown network from my network?

Try to change the Channel your wifi router uses because both routers may be overlapping

You are confusing physical layer noise with message integrity. Information at that level would not be affected by overlapping WiFi channels. – armani Apr 9 '15 at 19:45
