New Network Detected

    For the past two days, I've gotten a NIS New Network Detected window
    saying To join this network, select the location that has the security
    settings you want to use. Then it shows a Local IP: number and asks
    What location do you want to use? Away Home Office Custom
    Settings. The only option it gives me is OK.

    Meanwhile, I'm already connected wirelessly to my default wireless
    connection. Also, I'm on cable (Comcast).

    1. Why am I being told a new network is detected when I already have
    one?

    2. The Local IP# is different from the one I had or still have (?),
    and I don't know if I'm supposed to be switching to a new location.

    3. If I am supposed to be joining this new network, I guess I should
    select Home, since this is my home desktop but I don't know for sure.
