Default need help connecting to my wireless internet

Hi everyone, I just got a new laptop with windows vista on it, and I've been trying to connect to the internet but for some reason I cannot, my wireless router is a linksys and it requires a password, but I cant seem to find the right linksys from the list that the windows network comes up with because whenever i click on what i believe is the right one it doesnt ask me for the password.

Im not sure what im doing wrong, if anyone can help id love it, I have a macbook that I'm using to type this so the wireless internet is working and I connected to it easily with the mac.

thanks

Go into the router's settings and change the wireless network name (SSID) from "linksys" to something different. Then you wont have any trouble remembering which router to connect to.
