I'm running Vista. When I open my available wireless network my Linksys connection shows up multiple times like this:

Linksys 2
Linksys 2 3
Linksys 2 3 4

This continues up to about 23. Is this some kind of problem with my network?

it sound like your picking up multiple wireless connections under the linksys SSID. if this is true theres nothing wrong with your network just alot of other people have linksys at their SSID. Id suggest changing your SSID and adding some wireless security either WEP or WPA
