I have just clicked on the wireless connecion and opened up view available wireless networks and before I just had my linksys connection showing security enabled network connected, now I have another two appeared one called Miles _ lan,unsecured network the other belkin 54g security enabled. What has happened.
As mentioned above your finding all available networks! For this reson id advise putting encryption on your wireless. It will not make your network invisible but will prevent just anyone accessing it! The encryption is fairly week though and i have seen various programs to break it but it better than none atall!
Hi I have just looked at my network which is linksys and it was secured but now is showing unsecured can you tell me what to do. And how do I encruption.And these others which are showing are these ok as long as I don't connect to them.
Go into the Wireless Security settings, per this screenshot click here and set up WPA encryption
Then when you "Connect" to your wireless network you will need to enter the "key" to be able to access it. The "key" is then saved so you don't have to re-enter it each time. The WPA key can be any string of between 8 and 63 characters, so you can use a phrase that you are likely to remember.
