    This morning I woke up, I went to turn on my computer like normal. Though, when going to connect to my WEP128-bit secured network, I kept getting denied. I unpluged the cables out of the router like normal, which usually fixes the problem when i cannot connect. Soon after this, two wireless networks are now available. One is secured which i cannot sign onto, ones unsecured which I can. I live in the country, I doubt its anyone elses especially with the signal strength. So I have two questions.

    Question 1. Is it possible for my home setup to be sending both a secured and unsecured options at the same time?

    Question 2. How do I choose to manually connect to this secured network so I can try retyping the password in. i tried viewing the networks, right clicked to propertys and typed the password in, still no go. Still can only connect to the unsecured one.

    I just want to resolve this issue and make sure i have a password on it and am confused as to my options now =/

    I suggest resetting the router and reconfiguring. That should get it's mind right.

    I agree, also remove preferred networks from the wireless connection so it has a fresh start.
