Network Connection names

haxdnoob
So, I've been hit with a few bugs with my internet, mainly the software which lets me use my usb network dongle to connect to my router, and a few times I had to uninstall it and reinstall to fix it, but every-time I go to the Network and Sharing Center, and click on the "manage network connections" tab when I have this problem, I find the name for my usb network profile thing is renamed to some generic name, and when I try to put it back (using this next bit as an example) to "awesome network", it says along the lines of "network of this name already exists, rename it nub".

Since im getting tired of this, is there a way to find these names and reset them so I can get my custom name for my network back?

The name in Control Panel\Network Connections, WAS "Netgear Wireless Connection", but when I try to rename it back to it, it won't let me, so I add in a number 2 to it; wat do?
