First of all, my system info:

Comcast high speed cable internet
Linksys Wireless-G Router
Dell XPS M1330 on Windows Vista
Connecting to internet wirelessly via router

When I got to "connect to a network" (lower right hand tool tray, click on network icon), various wireless networks in my area, including the one I've set up in my house, show up. The problem I can't figure out is, my own home wireless network shows up twice, once as a secured network and a second time as a unsecured network. For example, this is what I see in my list of wireless networks:

KC Wireless Network (Secure Network)
KC Wireless Network (Unsercure Network)
Joe's Home Network (secure network)
Smith Network (secure network)
etc...

Where "KC Wireless Network" is my home network. I checked my router settings and I've definitely set it up as a secured network, so i'm not sure why it shows up twice this way.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!!
