Re: Why?

That sounds as though it is your wireless connection to the router which is playing up.
Is this correct

Re: Why?

Oldjim beat me too it.  I had already written:
"Unidentified network" messages are usually associated with a wireless problem i.e. between your device and your router.  Not really anything to do with the broadband connection between your router and the telephone exchange.

Re: Why?

Sounds like your device is trying to connect to a neighbouring wifi network!
Network Properties will reveal the name of the network it is trying to connect to.

Re: Why?

This is correct in what you said regarding my connection from my wireless to my router,I rebooted my router a week ago and I did not have this problem I also noticed that sometimes I   have a exclamation mark on my wifi logo,is there a solution to this although it is not such a big problem but it would be nice to get to the bottom of this.

Re: Why?

Usually turning the wireless off then on again (or otherwise disconnecting then reconnecting) solves this issue, please let us know if that doesn't help though.
