Probably a neighbour's or neighbourhood internet cafe's. As to why it does not show up on your desktops, do you use wifi on your desktops as well? If you do then in that case, maybe it is a very weak signal that your desktops are not picking up (E.g. due to poorer antenna), or your desktop wireless card is not compatible (eg the router is set to only use 802.11G and refuse B connections).

No, no big deal. As long as its not bothering you otherwise, dont bother about it.
