I had been having slow internet speeds so I decided to hook up my netgear router straight to my main phone box in the kitchen and connected a wireless adapter to one of my spare usb points on my comp , i read on the net that if i connect straight to the source of my line that i would get a better connection rather than my router connected through ethernet cable) anyways ... i have switched between ethernet and wireless but the speeds have remained the same .. ive checked ipconfig/all through command prompt and found that there are 10 connections ? does a new connection show each time i switch from ethernet and wireless adapter ?

and is there a way to clear ipconfig so that it shows only the connection im using just now ?

here is what command prompt shows .....
