Hi, I would be happy to help you with your question.

There may be other wireless networks close by and the computer is automatically trying to connect to one of them. If there is security set up on it you will be prompted for a password XXXXX key.

I can help you keep this from happening if you can answer a few extra questions for me.

1. What OS are you using? (Windows 7, Vista, or XP. Or MAC or Linux?)
2. Do you know how to view local networks?
