Its letting you know that your wireless network is open and not secured. she just needs to acknowledge it and she will be able to browse the internet but it is not secured.
if you want to secure your wireless network you will need to configure it by opening internet explorer
browse to http://192.168.1.1
the default login is blank and the password is admin
click on wireless
click on wireless security and choose wpa personal
enter a passphase which you will use to join your wireless network securely on any wireless device.
your sister will need to rejoin the network once you do this and you will need to rejoin any other wireless device to join your secured wireless network.

Hope that helps you. Just FYI, a corrupted WINSOCK issue is usually the result of a virus or spyware corruption.

I have hooked it up as the instructions state but it will not find the internet, I am useing a hp laptop and am trying to go wireless, it is the vista system


No its not your windows system, try to check again your wireless router if the software firmware are installed properly in your PC. Also to configure it and connect your internet provider to the Router, which is automatically create its own Protocol Address or Obtain Address, even on Wireless connection. This is basic on Wireless Router to connect on the internet. Good luck!

I think that the settings in your sister laptop is the problem. See if it is using static ip ad and if it is using it, try to use dynamic to get an ip to the router.
