    I have this problem with a wireless connection. I have two HP Pavillion Nvidia nForce networking contollers. There is also a D-Link Router with 802.11g/2.4ghz. Under the Available Wireless Connections there are different connections. They have different wierd names with like a combinations of numbers and letters. There is also a NETGEAR connection. I'm just trying to figure out which one is mine, and which one are the neighbors, and I'm trying to find the password for it, or maybe make a new connection that is connected to that router.

    Configure your router's SSID to be a unique string that you'll recognize, then you'll know.

    You need to find the original documentation for your router. It will give you the router address, something similar to 192.168.1.1 or 0.0, 0.1, etc.... When you connect to your router you can go in to the wireless settings and change your SSID.
