Wired or Wireless?

Why is it finding multiple networks?
Do you have multiple subnets on the one network segment?

It is wireless

Can you tell me what you mean by multiple subnets on the one network?

Multiple Subnets on the one Network Segment:

Two or more different IP Address ranges on the one network.
Ie: network and network.

Eg, Two routers on the same LAN.
