    Hey,

    I just did a fresh install on my computer yesterday, and today i found a Internet Gateway on my network connections.

    Its name is: "Conexiones de red inalámbricas on IDAMIAN"
    Type: Internet Gateway
    Device Name: Conexiones de red inalámbricas on IDAMIAN
    Owner: System
    STatus: disabled

    Where did this come from? AND HOW DO I GET RID OF IT!?

    ~Dan

    p.s. any help would be great, I am a little perplexed.

    Are you on a wireless network?

    Wireless networking on IDAMIAN

    Thats the translation.. as for getting rid of it just right click on it and disable it then right click and press delete. But if you ARE on a wireless network it will just reinstall itself

    Thanks, but I am on a LAN network (college ethernet not a wireless network) with no personal routers.

    If I try and delete it (with it disabled) I get the message:
    "the connection you selected cannot be deleted"

    Any more suggestions?

    ~Dan :confused:

    I should have taken the advice I tell everyone with a computer problem. I just restarted and it is gone. :eek:

    I am still curious as to how it got there, if anyone has ideas.

    1. Someone on the computer IDAMIAN was running ICS. Your computer picked it up and installed it as a possible Internet Gateway.

    2. The person then removed ICS (probably). After you rebooted the connection was no longer there so XP removed it.

    Since it's a collage network I'm not surprised.
