    Weird number behind Wifi


    When I open the Wifi screen thingie, everything works just fine. There is just one thing, I don't get the number behind "Wi-Fi"

    Anyone does get it?

    Well you appearantly have 3 different wifi connections created.

    Go to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change Adapter Settings and you'll see the different Connections available. Determine which one is redundant or leave them be as it's not really hurting anything.
