Wired or Wireless?

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

Multiple Subnets on the one Network Segment:

Two or more different IP Address ranges on the one network.
Ie: 192.168.1.0 network and 10.0.0.0 network.

Eg, Two routers on the same LAN.

Thank you for your help, but I have managed to sort it by re-installing the network adapters in device manager... That seems to have done the trick. Strange but its worked.
