Upstairs in the office where the PC is...that's where I am right now with the laptop. About a month ago I bought a Linksys WiFi Range Extender that I had set up (with the help of Linksys support) downstairs in the living room which is directly below where I am right now. The support person told me that was a great spot for it and when I had it set up and running with out all these problems I'm having right now...I had outstanding signal strength...even if I walked into the kitchen with my iPhone I still had a great connection...without the extender in the kitchen my iPhone would go in and out with the bars and if I were in the upstairs bathroom my signal strength was low if any at all until I hooked up that extender again. But this last time I spoke with a tech support person from Linksys was last weekend and I got a serious ill migraine. I couldn't understand him at all let alone I wasn't sure if he was even understanding me cuz he kept saying the same things to me over and over no matter what I asked him. When he was trying to set up my extender again (because my grandson pulled it out of its outlet in the wall) he wasn't doing the same things the other tech person was doing in the beginning...and he kept adding it to the wrong one which I kept asking him about...he was connecting it to the one that had the pic of the monitors with the cable...and everytime I'd ask him about that saying that I don't that's right because I don't have a cable hooked up to my laptop at all...but he insisted...that's when I started to notice that I had a different network? in my lil box on the bottom right corner...where it says my network name and like my neighbors etc...but I'd never seen this one before ever...and when I'd put my mouse over it it said I was connected to it but when I tried to click on it to bring it up so I could click on properties etc...it would go away...I saw this name only about maybe 5 times and each time it said I was connected but I couldn't pull it up and try to find out any info on it. It was never listed anywhere and I mean anywhere and everywhere...but then it really started to scare me...when I'd pull up like a file of some sort and I'd look at things inside it like who has permissions etc...there was now a new account and it's name was "Account Unknown" with a Sand a ton of numbers after it...I've never seen this before and like I said after talking to that tech person and getting such a ill grueling migraine and asking for a supervisor then realizing I was speaking to someone in the Philippines I finally asked to speak to someone in the USA and the supervisor said I'd have to call back and take my chances I'd be hooked up with someone in the states...I didn't bother my migraine got so bad and I just ended up here...but I saw that Network name a few days ago it said I was connected but I couldn't pull anything up on it...feeling as tho I've been hacked or something I disconnected from it and haven't seen it since. So here I am still trying to fix all this :/
