Why can't Windows 7 remember my tether? New Connection Setup every time

Hey folks!

 

In Windows 7 when you connect to a new network you're prompted to set it as a Home, Work or Public connection. Presumably this influences default security settings.

 

That's all well and good, except for the part that everytime I USB tether my smartphone Motorola RAZR MAXX the Windows 7 comes up with a new dialogue. I think I'm up to generic connection 85 or something? It's getting ridiculous.

 

Is there anyway to get Windows 7 to remember the phone tether as ONE connection only?

I just had a quick search around, and a test using my BlackBerry, I can't see any way to make it stay as 1 connection 😞

There are posts all over the internet complaining about it!

Yes, this is very very annoying thing and no solution.

 

Wifi sharing is bad because only in USB mode the connection is stable, however I do not know why. WLAN reconnect to Internet randomly and sometimes I need to restart Wifi sharing just to bring Internet back. But with USB sharing there is problem with network names.
