I have a Dell laptop with windows XP. I use it with my wireless broadband router. Over the past few weeks occasionaly when I switch on the laptop I get a message "Duplicate name on the network". I am not sure what I
need to do and what is causing this. Please advice.
Thanks.

It should have been one of the options when you setup the wireless network. You should be able to go over the setup and see there.

What kind is it? Mine, requires that the network be encrypted. I'm not an expert at wireless networks but I do know that someone I know uses his neighbors wireless connection to get on line, he knows but anyone could as it is an open system. One of the Mods here should know more than I about this.

Thanks I'll look it up in the manual once again. Is there something I can do to prevent others from using my network?
