Unidentified Network Shows up,not connected/using Ethernet

So this has been showing up for the past week or so under my network connections. I am not using Ethernet as I have no cable plugged into my PC; I have been using WiFi instead. This problem isn't at one place, I have been using WiFi on different routers in few different locations but this "connection" remains there.

Any ideas on what this could be and why it is occurring? Also, it takes at least 2-3 minutes for my computer to connect to WiFi when it is booted after shut down/ sleep on any router. Can this be related to the problem above?

Thanks in advance for your help. :)

Looks like it still thinks you are connected to the Ethernet connection. You would have to pull up Network adapters in Network Control Center, to see why you are getting the limited connection. You are not using a VPN per chance?

I am not using any VPN service. I went to Network Control and found this:

A bunch of connections under that unidentified network.

I just manually disabled each of those connections under the unidentified network and it is gone for now.

Virtual Box is what is causing it.
