Great connection on my wifi before, now slow

August 27, 2010 at 15:49:22
Specs: Windows 7
I purchased a new toshiba laptop on 8/10/2010 I am on the same wifi, in the exact location as before on my gateway laptop, I could get a great connection all day long on my Gateway laptop, now on this new one, I'm lucky if I can connect 1 hour out of 24. I must have set up something wrong, it is linksys, The new computer came with Norton security, I did not have Norton before. Also, should I have it set on public or home? When I go to workgroup it shows me another computer which belongs to my neighbor next door, why is this? I don't know what to try different, there have always been several people here using the same wifi connection, it never slowed mine down before. Please help. Tell me what I have done wrong.
I have windows 7 home premium.

fact it shows a neighbors computer tells me you are not on your wireless router but theirs. Or they are on your network.

You did set a wireless encryption key on your wireless access?

No, I didn't set anything, how can I do this? Or check to see. All that I did was find linksys and then clicked configure. How can I tell if I am on my next door neighbors router. I am in a campground, and I am suppose to be running off their router at the office.
Thank you,
