Why am I connected to multiple internets simultaneously?:

you're not, thats just the list of available. you're only connected to the one with the black dot by it, in your case "moobilenet"

You are not connected to multiple internets.. but you have multiple connections..

one lan (with a cable)
and one wlan

I'm not sure how ubuntu handles such a situation.. probably only one of them is used (the faster one?) as default (at least if you don't mess around with the routing)

it seems like those are just ones near you that it detects. the one selected is the one you are on. PS. lol @ PiMpHoUsE

It's probably your neighbours. ;)

oops I didn't notice the black dot next to the wired also...hmm that's strange!!

The same thing happens to me and everyone I know, and all that I can come up with is that this is part of the function. Wired and wireless can both be connected at once, but wired is used while this is done. This is so that when you unplug it, it can seamlessly switch to wireless. That's what I think anyway, because I know that while wireless and wired are both connected, my connections go through wired, yet wireless is still connected (I checked DHCP on my router who was leasing):popcorn:
