Hi,

I have the same problem. And it seems to be a universal one. Stack Exchange has a solution:

https://superuser.com/questions/729305/prevent-windows-from-creating-new-network-names-when-tethering-with-android

The only downside is that the network icon in the notification area doesn't work properly. Is there a way to stop adding new names AND make the network icon work?

Regarding your questions:

  • Windows 10 is updated
  • drivers are updated
  • This issue always occured. (started using usb tethering one week ago)

Regards
