This sounds to me like your device has WIFI Direct turned on. The only way to turn this off afaik is through CMD.

 

Open Start, type: CMD


Right click CMD
Click Run as administrator

 

Type in at the prompt OR Copy and Paste these one at a time : (Hit enter after each)

netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

 

Then type:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow

 

Hit Enter

Exit then restart.
