ok i eventually got my router/modem configured got my internet access, bit concerned about what it said about being an unsecured wireless network says the network is configured for open access info sent over this network may be visable to others. whats all that about???

still can't get my 2 pc's to communicate 2 each other yet, mind you haven't got a clue what i'm doing

Being a wireless connection it workes by radio communication. This means that all signals between computers in the network will be radiated for quite a distance and could be picked up by anyone outside your house or by a next door neighbour etc.

You ought to use encryption if you don't live in a remote cave!

Incidently, nuker, can you please give us more of a clue about what you want 'help' about in the subject.
