When I try to connect to my internet at home with my new smart phone, my computer shows up on the phone, but it shows a lock and won't let me access my internet. I'm running windows xp and I have no idea how to go about unlocking my network or whatever it is that needs unlocking and I was hoping someone could help a poor girl out.

@Montana,
Does your modem have a password or code? I'm assuming it is password protected. Call your cable provider, they can help you. This has nothing to do with XP.

@Ceili,
That’s what I was thinking, my wireless has a code so if you try to hook up another computer you can’t get connected without the code.

What is showing up on your phone is the signal your router is broadcasting. Any wireless capable device within range of your router will see that broadcast. Your phone shows a lock because access to the internet from your router is password protected. If your computer is using this connection, the password was used for access. That same password must be entered in to your phone.

It's been a while since I've used XP but try this (I use Windows7):
On your computer, point your mouse to the bottom right of your screen to your taskbar. Click the "Internet access" icon. Right-click your Network. Select "Properties". There should be a text field called something like "Network security key" with the text hidden. Select the "Show charactors" checkbox. This should reveal the password in the security key tex field.

On your phone, you should be able to select your network (from whatever screen was showing it) and then be given the option to enter the password that you just found on your computer.

@thack45,
I think thack has it exactly right. You might have to work with your phone's owner's manual to see how to enter the access key.

@Montana,
If do not want the students listen to the radios instead of pay more attention to their studies and what their teachers are teaching then using the wireless jammer is a helpful method.

@taroldleme010,
Are you inebriated or think you're answering a different thread on a different forum or both?
