    Now i am not sure if this is a bug or just me, i don't remember seeing anyone else post similar problems.

    I still use my iPhone 4 for USB Tethering and sometimes WiFi too,and i noticed something on my Windows 7 machine since iOS 5 that everytime i plug in my iPhone it creates a new "home network"? On old iOS the very first time you tethered an iPhone it created a windows home network and that was it. Now everytime i plug my phone in i get windows pop up saying "connected to Home Network#". The # being how many times i tethered since iOS 5, right now my PC has 18 home networks from my iPhone :eek:

    So next time i plug in to use internet i will be creating Home Network number 19 on my pc! Started with iOS 5 so surely its got to be a bug or something? Is it just me, anybody else?

    Thanks

    I'm having the same issue. It started with iOS 5.

    On Windows 7 you can merge your network connections, or delete them and start over, but they'll continue to count up again.

    Hope this get solved soon.
