    I'm connected to a linksys wirless network. When I choos the
    connection, there is no locl on the wirless network, and the line below
    says unsecured windows network. When I connect to the network, the
    connection shows as excellent, but it is slow, slow, slow, (2 packets a
    minute slow). The activity screen now shows a lock and says the
    network is secure, but the connection says it is not. What is going
    on? Is the connection secure or not?
    If it is why can I connect at all, albiet slow?
    If it is not why so slow and why does the lock only apear in the
    activity screen?
