how do you check if it is encrypted network
Expert:  Qin Xia replied 7 years ago.
I knew you have wifi wireless card with your netbook. You mentioned that you are connected. Do you connect with your home wireless network (you have router, wireless access point in your house) or connect to public wifi hot spot?

wireless in home and I am using the same connection right now on dif. computer

When you click the availiable wireless networks in you netbook, it pop up a list
There is icon of "closed Lock" before the name of each name, that means encrypted

In my home, the password XXXXX XXXXX the bottom of my wireless router, it is 10 digit number.

Can you try yo find it in your wireless route?
