i hope this is in the right spot, sorry if its not

i have just noticed that on my notebook computer when i do a wireless network search i am getting, the name of my router and then my neighbor and then the name of my router again, but this one says unsecured computer to computer network - with on demand on the right side.

i have done a wireless search with my psp and it doesnt show up

i have 3 computer connected to my router one is wired and 2 are wireless. i also have a ps3 -wired and xbox- wireless

is it in the router or this computer?

can some one please explain what this is it says unsecured.

Your neighbour has set up a Ad-hoc network. Basically his computer is acting as the router which in turn connects to his internet. So when you connect to that network you are connecting to the "router" which is his computer. This is something that isn't so safe especially if you are connecting to such a network you don't even know because, well, connecting DIRECTLY to another computer is dangerous.

Try changing your SSID to something different and then see if theres still 2 networks maybe your friends messing with you lol.

It sounds to weird that shouldn't be happening.
