On one of my computers, I've got the name as supposed to. But on the other, despite the fact that it's recognized as ChamsterNet, when I connect to it, it get's the name ChamsterNet 2. All's working just fine but that annoys me so terribly...

How do I get rid of it?!

I suspect that it's got to do with the fact that I Reinstalled the firmware on the router. So, I think I'd like to clear the cache of all the networks ever found. Where can I do that? I've tried forgetting that network (the one with 2 in the name) but it keeps re-popping.

Right now, it looks like this. (Sorry for the Swedish.)

You need to forget ChamsterNet. Since Windows thinks it's seeing a different network with an identical SSID, it's appending the 2. Getting rid of ChamsterNet "1" and ChamsterNet2 should fix this annoyance.

But how?! When I forget ChamsterNet 2, the old Chamster Net appears but when I conenct to it, it shows as ChamsterNet 2 again... – Konrad Viltersten Feb 19 '13 at 0:05
Did you forget both of them? There should be two. – Tanner Faulkner Feb 19 '13 at 2:44
Nope, I only saw one. And even more weird - now I'm connected to ChamsterNet, it's displayed as ChamsterNet 2 but none of them displays among the networks in Manage wireless networks! What's happeninig?! How do I forget everything and start over?! – Konrad Viltersten Feb 19 '13 at 7:34
Actually, maybe this will better exemplify my problem. See the second image in my question (just updated it). – Konrad Viltersten Feb 19 '13 at 9:01
