SDElect view available network conections and select to connect to it. You then will be asked for the password you set up for the secure network to finish the connection.

Do you know the password to this wireless access?
Do you know the level of wireless encryption being used?
Are you connecting to the right router?

"and no i don't need the network pass cause it doesn't exist and i don't know the encryp"

If it is a secured network then who set it up? Does it use WEP, WPA/PSK WPA2
You need to know which encryption protocol is in use and whether the wireless NIC in your PC supports that level of encryption. Older systems may only support WEP and if any higher encryption is used there is nothing you can do to connect,

A network password does certainly exist.

Who set up the router? Ask them for the password.
