PC Detects SSID as "Network" while connected with an Ethernet Cable, when looking at wifi networks the SSID is correct. Why is a cable connection making the SSID blank/default?

Does the PC also contain a wireless network card? Try disabling any other network adapters except for the one that is in use.

Everything was working fine until the router was reset and got a new SSID/password so maybe there are 2 SSIDs? One wired and the other wireless?

SSID applies to wireless networks, it probably has your old SSID stored in as an access point.

The old one wasn't "Network" but maybe you mean that its the one it registered after the reset when there was no name put in yet.. Can I somehow reset it to see if that's the case? I tried the "forget network" option but it still says "Network" after I reconnect. Thanks for the quick replies by the way.

Yeah, on my end it says Network / Private network.. It was named the same as the WiFi before that but if you say its normal then I guess that's it. Thanks for your time.
