I have a linksys wireless g network that connects to my computer as multiple
networks one as the ssid i set my network up as, and another as an
unidentified network. If i disconnect from one they both go away. The
multiple network issue causes IE not to connect. Please HELP?

What do you mean multiple networks? Do you mean the multihomed computer with two NICs? Post the result of ipconfig /all here may help.

You are correct, we have two computers in our network one is connected wired
to the router and is running Windows XP and one is a wireless connection to
the second machine which was recently upgraded to Vista Home. This is the
machine I am having issue with. Per your request:

Windows IP Configuration


Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Link-local IPv6 Address.....: fe80::a507:90cd:7eaa:c35b%9
IPv4 Address...........: 192.168.1.101
Subnet Mask...........: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway..........: 0.0.0.0
192.168.1.1

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

You may have multiple NICs, but the ipconfig shows only wireless connects. From the ipconfig result, I think you may have a routing issue. Can you post the routing table back? To do that, use this command line: route print.

Just a guess here, but from looking at what you've provided all of the
networks are the same. The second is a IPv6 networks and if you take a close
look at the IP address you'll notice the IPv4 address embedded.

I get real nervous when I hear things like "unidentified." Do you have a
need for the IPv6 protocol? If not then I'd disable it in your network
settings and see if that removes the unidentified network.
