List of wireless connections available

Hi: You've already fixed 1 problem for me. But now I've another. Under the list of wireless connections, there is a linksys which is barely there and I can't move away from the router and stay online. There is another connection which I'm sure is mine but there is a gold lock next to it. How do I unlock this, or how do I make a new wireless connection?
Thanks for your help.

    I don't understand what you mean by " re-set your router to the device thats receiving the signal". How and where would I do this?

Try this first,re-set your router,there should be a small hole behind the router,you will need a safety pin for this,now you will have to re-set your router to the device thats receiving the signal,see if this works for you.

Good day.
Since you already have a wireless connection, it would be easy for you to connect to the wireless network as long as you know your Network name(SSID) and wireless key which could be WEP or WPA. On the lower right hand on part on your desktop,also called the system tray,please look for the wireless icon which looks like an antenna with radio waves. Right click on that icon and please click "View available wireless connection," your network should appear on the list. Please click on your network name and click "Connect" to start your wireless connection. If it prompts for a wireless key or password, you could contact your Internet Service Provider to provide you with the password.

I hope this has helped you today.

    No wireless adapter detected ad wireless button ot turning on


    First u need to make sure ur adapter is installed correctly.
    1. Click on Start-->Run-->Type in "devmgmt.msc"
    which will open device manager.
    Under device manager , u should find network adapters, make sure ur adapter is listed under it without any yellow exclamation mark or red cross which would mean that the drivers are not installed correctly or the adapter is disabled. In this case u need to reinstall the drivers via the CD.
    2. Secondly u need to goto start-->run-->type in "msconfig"
    which will open the system configuration window. Now under the "startup" TAB. Find the service for ur wireless card and disable it by unchecking it and then apply the settings and OK.
    Reboot computer once
    3. After reboot, goto start-->run-->type in "services.msc"
    It will open the services windows . Find an option for wireless zero configuration . Rt click on it and start it.
    4. Goto start-->run-->type in "ncpa.cpl"
    It will open network connections window.
    Rt click on Wireless network conection and enable it .
    If it is already enabled , then rt click on it again and click on "View available wireless connections"
    It will give u a list of all the wireless connections available in ur area.
    Click on the one which is ur connection and then click on connect.
    It might ask u for a wireless key if it is a secure connection. Enter the key and it should all work fine.
