I have an Acer 64bit Aspire computer with a Cox Webstar Scientific Atlanta modem and Linksys Wireless-6 2.4 GHZ broadband router. When the modem and router are working OK I have no problem connecting to the internet. There are 2 desktop computers hooked up to the wireless router with a Belkin Wireless G desktop card. Lately it seems even when I get online the other 2 computers aren't able to get online.

I've tried unplugging the modem and router and then plugging them in again.

When I checked on the connections on one of the computers that wont go online, the names of other people's connections is listed but not the "name" of the Belkin connection (it's listed on the "my connection" page.).

Any answers? Might the connections of others on my street be overriding my router's connection to the other computers in my home?

wireless can get tricky if there is interference.
you may want to try changing the channel of the wireless signal on the router.
the other thing is make sure you are using a password encryption that all of the devices support
also make sure you set your SSID to something other than linksys.
