Sure..e net is a direct connection..so that means your computer is ready..if the network you are seeking is not showing up, then you are most likely too far away, or you may need to refresh the network reading panel, until it opens..

I would recomand you to creat a new network profile.

Trouble shooting steps:
  1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, and then clicking Connect to.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • If the network that you want to create a profile for is in the list, click it, and then click Connect.

      If you save the network after successfully connecting to it, a profile for the network is stored on your computer. The next time you open Connect to a Network, the network will be in the list of available networks, if it is in range of your computer.

    • If the network that you want to create a profile for is not in the list and you think that it is in range of your computer, make sure that the wireless network adapter on your computer is enabled by doing the following:

      1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.

      2. Right-click the network adapter, and then click Enable.

To connect to an existing access point (infrastructure) network, under Available networks, click the network name, and then click Configure.
In Wireless Network Properties, specify the wireless network key (Wired Equivalent Privacy) settings, or, if the network key is automatically provided for you (for example, the key is stored on the wireless network adapter given to you by your administrator), select the The key is provided for me automatically check box. If you are unsure about whether a network key is needed or which settings you need to enter, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer.

Important
If a network does not broadcast its network name, it will not appear under Available networks. To connect to an access point (infrastructure) network that you know is available but that does not appear under Available networks, under Preferred networks, click Add. In Wireless Network Properties, specify the network name (Service Set Identifier) and, if needed, the wireless network key settings.


Computer-to-computer (ad hoc)

When you enable automatic wireless network configuration, you can connect to an existing wireless network, change wireless network connection settings, configure a new wireless network connection, and specify preferred wireless networks. You will be notified when new wireless networks are available. After you select a wireless network, your wireless network adapter will be automatically configured to match the settings of that network, and a network connection attempt will be made.

To configure settings on the Wireless Networks tab, you must be logged on as an administrator, and you must use a wireless network adapter that supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service. If you are unsure whether your wireless network adapter supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer. For more information about automatic wireless network configuration, see Related Topics.
If you are using third-party wireless networking software, clear the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.
If you are unable to connect to an existing wireless network and the name of the network that you want to connect to appears under the Preferred networks list, click the preferred network name, and then click Properties. In Wireless Network Properties, review the settings to ensure that they are correct. If you are unsure whether the settings are correct, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer.
If the Preferred networks list includes both access point (infrastructure) and computer-to-computer (ad hoc) networks, you cannot move a computer-to-computer network to a position in the list that is higher than the position of an access point network.

When I opened the available connections I noticed that there were three other networks listed as available. It seems that people around my house have been logging into my network. How do I stop this


you can see 3 other networks in the list. that means there are 3 more wireless networks in your area. your neighbor might be having wireless router and you are abl to see their wireless networks.
This is the list of available wireless networks that your computer can see and connect to.
If your wireless network is not secured then make sure that you will put password on your wireless network.

Not shown on available networks


Your router is probably configured not to broadcast your SSID (the name of your wlan)? You should be able to enable it by logging on to the router from the computer that is still connected.

I am trying to set up another computer but cannot connect even though it shows the network available. How do I secure the wireless network?


Is this router set up with any security on the wireless? With a wired connection to the router, log in to http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 as needed to access your router. Once you are logged in, go to the Wireless section (the SSID, or name, of your network) and, if you have not already, set up Security. I prefer using WEP-PSK[TKIP] for its ease of use. You will need to use the new passcode to log on to your router from wireless computers. Anyone that does not know the passcode will be denied access to it.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences


Connecting to the Wireless Network

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

For Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then select Connect To.
2. Connect to a network window will show up.
3. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
4. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

We hope that the above steps provided would help resolve the problem. If the steps above did not work, we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Can your computer go online when it is hardwired to the router?
2. What wireless adapter are you using?
3. What is the operating system of your computer?
