Question about Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point
Sometimes when I get disconnected from the Internet, I click on the Linksys icon and it shows my network but also my neighbor's name with a lock next to it. This seems to happen when he's home from college so that's why I think he's using the computer when this happens. I do not have a password on my wireless router and I've never had any other problem.
The Lock means that he has a secure network or he has the WAP enabled.. Can the two networks interfere? Yes. The two networks will "fight" over which one will your computer use to connect.. and sometimes you will connect to his network and therefore get no internet or limited connectivity.. You can make sure that your computer only connects to your network by permanently removing his SSID from your settings.
