I run Windows 7 on a partitioned drive, Ubuntu on C drive and Windows 7 RC on the D drive. There is a laptop that runs Vista that also connects to the home network. Whenever I boot into Win 7, I have no access to the internet.

When going into the Network and Sharing Center, I see that I have two active networks.

Using trial and error, I found a way to fix this but the problem creeps up again upon the next start-up. I disable the connection and then use Troubleshoot to connect to the Network once more.

Does anyone have a quick solution that I may implement to prevent me from doing the same procedure over and over again?

Dmitriy, hello. I would suggest that you get rid of the extra network, whatever it is. In the Network and Sharing center, under "View your active networks", click on the "Local Area Connection" link to the right of the Unidentified Public Network. What is creating this connection?
