    Question wireless manager finds lots of networks but NOT mine?!


    I have just installed puppy linux on an old pc.
    I have have tried connecting to the internet using a belkin wireless dongle.... when it scans for available networks it shows a 5 or 6 but none of them are mine.

    The belkin dongle connected the pc to my network when I was using windows xp but now puppy linux just wont pick my wifi network up.

    Can anybody help please????
