Multiple wireless LAN connections but cant locate to disable

2020-10-23, 21:32 PM

 

 

 

 

I have been  having ridiculous connection issues over the  past few weeks and decided to dig into it a little bit since I have never had any issues with my connection being as slow as it is, especially with 5G & a  crazy ex history. Because of this I ended up spending months and months looking into coding, different languages, commands, etc. so I was better educated to try and protect myself and my information from it happening again. But, there's plenty that I do not know and before I send myself into anymore of an overwhelmed panic attack I figured I should get some knowledgeable input from people who know what they are talking about and looking at. 

 

  • I ended up putting in the  ipconfig/all  command  and 2 separate Wireless LAN connections popped up and then I assume the main Wireless LAN in the laptop itself. (Screenshots attached)

Not sure why these connections even became to be since I have never seen them before and  my connection has always been through my Phones Hotspot. My laptop doesn't even have an Ethernet port.

 

  • Downloaded Lenovo's Diagnostic Scan tool thing and ran a diagnostics scan through  the Network Adapter option.  Came back with "no problems". Still I clicked for more details about the troubleshooting scan and just some things jump out at me that just don't seem right.  Below I will paste the details from the scan.
