Phantom network and wep key issues.
There seems to be an intermittent fault with my wireless connection, picking up a none existent network.
Vista finds this network roughly 1 in 3 times when I try to connect and shows it as an unsecured network named Netgear. When this network is present I can not connect to my normal network due to either vista finding an unknown fault or the wep key being changed to an old password and refusing to be altered back.
Only one machine of the three I own (all vista) pick up the phantom network.
I can not connect to this ghost network, nor does it show any properties or have any details under "manage wireless connections".
There seems to be no relation to the problem occurring while other machines are connected to my usual network (broadcast from a standard talktalk router)
Anyone know how to find out what the phantom network is (possibly a network created when trying to connect to the wireless initially, and left in the ether after a few false starts) and how to remove it.
The only other thing I can think of is that the machine which is having problems was previously connected to the web via a netgear power adapter/broadcaster.
