This year my residential college is testing their wireless setup. When I connect to their network, sometimes Vista shows the network status like this,

Why does it show like I am connected to two networks, eventhough I am not Undecided

I have no idea what causes this, but I had a similar thing happen with wired network connections - Vista showed I was connected to two networks when I was only connected to one. I got rid of the annoyance by merging the network connections - courtesy of Google:

1. Click the Start button, right-click Network, choose Properties from the context menu, and then authenticate yourself to User Account Control. Windows displays a Network and Sharing Center window.

2. In the main part of the window, click the Customize link next to the listing for your main network connection. Windows displays the Customize Network Settings window.

3. Click the Merge or Delete Network Locations link near the bottom of the window, and then authenticate yourself to User Account Control. Windows displays the Merge or Delete Network Locations dialog box .

4. Select the networks you want to merge, and then click the Merge button. Windows displays the Merge Network Locations dialog box, shown here.

5. In the list box, select the network into which you want to merge the network locations- in other words, the network that you want to have once the merge is complete.

6. Click the OK button. Windows merges the networks.
