Internet Gateway

Recently, after attempting unsuccessfully to install a Belkin wireless G+ mimo USB adapter I find that I have a new icon on my task bar (2 monitors). Explorin this I find that there appears to be an open Internet connection with traffic passing forward and back all the time. The properties describes this as 'allowing you to connect to the internet through a shared connection on another computer', but I'm not doing this. My connection is Wireless via a BT Voyager modem/router. Needless to say I find this a bit worrying and wonder whether I've got some nasty in my system?
I can't turn it off - I get the response 'disconnection not possible at this time connection is busy with a connect / disconnect operation'

Anyone got any ideas.
