I'm sure it's a Windows thing that we put up with.
It doesn't recognise it as the same network. I've seen it myself when I used open public WiFi at my favourite fried chicken restaurant. I'd get Dicos, Dicos 1, Dicos 2, Dicos 3 and so on. Even though it was the same restaurant and WiFi AP. I just hit close on the dialogue box, I couldn't care if it was home or work or whatever. Getting a new IP address each time is normal, that's DHCP, unless the AP is configured give the same IP addresses to known devices.
I found Windows 7 frequently does it on the school network as well, which is hard wired ethernet and not WiFi
, Network, Network 1, Network 2, Network 3 and so on.
Linux doesn't do it.
