I have accidentally created two Network Adapter connections, namely:

NETCOMM NB5 USB REMOTE NDIS NETWORK DEVICE – PACKET SCHEDULER MINIPORT.
NETCOMM NB5 USB REMOTE NDIS NETWORK DEVICE #2 – PACKET SCHEDULER MINIPORT.

I cannot delete them, as it says - they are involved in booting-up. How can I remove them? * I assume that there is only meant to be one? I have also disabled one connection. They do not adjust, merge and or disappear with a re-start, etc. (The are also two Internet Connections on the Start Programs list.  Likewise they do not delete.).


THANKS:

This is for a Motorola DSL Modem hrmm.  In the Device Manager goto View -> Show Hidden Devices and see if you can remove them all, reboot and then reinstall the NetComm NB5 drivers, unless of course their installed by the USB device (you could also look around on the net for updated versions).  Im not sure what the actual problem is (network issues or just concern over there being two listed; it may actually use both loaded drivers for many different reasons).

It is a NB5  Netcomm. I use a Dell GX 260 Optiplex, with XP Home SP2. ADSL2+. Ethernet connection. It/they will not delete, and re-boot has no affect. It maybe one is for USB and the other Ethernet connection, depending what may be used in any given circumstance. Maybe - someone knows if two are ok? I suspect it really should be one, as 2 entries with the same name in the Start Menu are unusual and unnecessary?!  I appreciate your help.
