Uninstall all the bt stuff and you should be good to go. I see this crap with the bt home hub software all the time. Still its a quick 45 quid repair for me <grin>.

two networks are not a good idea,unless they are hard coded (so to speak)in to your computer
when you are at home and the office what do you use to connect to the internet is it woreless or ehternet or both
