I'm not sure but I think you have to put in a WEP key.

Basically, it's a password you set. Anyone who tries to connect to your network will have to put in this password. The more letters and numbers and symbols you use in the password, the more secure it is.

(I am writing this of my norwegian set up, sorry for any bad translations, cannot be bothered to log out and log in on english ).

Right click on your wireless internet connection and select properties. Then select "wireless network" (the tab in the middle). If you have one or more wireless networks available you can select them from the list now available... Select your wireless network of desire, and select "properties".

You may now see two drop down boxes. Select WPA-PSK in the first one and AES data encryption in the second. Then type the network key/password in the two empty boxes below... Hit okay and off you go.

lol,m sorry for being a noob but.. how do I reach all this? Seting up the password. And sunb! I dont know how to reach what you said I went to control panel, then Network connections, then choose the connection that reads "Local Area Network", went to properties, but then I couldnt find what you said :/

And the connection isnt fast, better than before but not the best

I got a wireless router that is square in shape, has a stick-like figure sticking out from the top. There are a few wires out of that thing, one wire is pluged into this PC. So I am being connected to the interned because of this wire.
