I connected two machines via a crossover cable and gigabit ethernet adapters.

First problem was that I saw two connection, my wireless (fine), the wired was "Unidentified Network".

So I fixed this from a post on these forums using these settings:

Computer 1
IP addr: .............192.168.1.100
Subnet mask: ....255.255.255.0
Gateway: ...........192.168.1.101

Computer 2
IP addr: .............192.168.1.101
Subnet mask: ....255.255.255.0
Gateway: ..........192.168.1.100

Now in Windows 7 Network and Sharing Center I have my wireless (no problems), and TWO networks using the wired connection!

1) "Network" with a type "Home Network" joined to homegroup (cool!)
2) "Unidentified network" with a type "Public network".

How do I remove the second/"unidentified public network?

It's been a long time since I have touched network settings. Any help would be great!

I don't know the solution, but I also don't quite see why it's a problem.

Just use one of them.
