I need help with my wifi

Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not.

So last night I was playing poker on this site. I got disconnected, so I reset the router and got back on. I was disconnected 3 more times, each time resetting the router.

My network was secure, and it had it's own name. Now, it says that it's unsecured, and when I look at it from the connect to wifi list, it is now named as linksys. When I plug into the router directly, the named connection comes up automatically, but still says unsecured linksys on the wifi connection list.

It's been awhile since I set up the router and secured it, do I have to do all of that again? Or is there some kind of other easy fix to get it to recognize it again?

From my past experiences you have to do it all over again. it's better to be safe than sorry and have your signal jacked.

I was afraid of that. I don't remember how to do it.

You might need to call your ISP Helpless desk and have them guide you through it. That's what I had to do.

I know I did it myself the previous 2 times I had done it. I wish I had saved the web instructions that I used before. I didn't think I would have to set it up again.

Fixed.
