No "lock" on my network?

No "lock" on my network?

I don't see a "lock" on my network (I have a MAC). Does that mean it is NOT secure? I thought the technician had set up a WEP password.

 

If I need to set up my password, how do I do it?

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately I don't get it. It does say wireless security is enabled. My network looks unlocked when compared to others. See picture. file:///Users/michaelerwine/Desktop/Screen%20shot%202011-03-20%20at%201.39.24%20PM.png

We can't see the screenshot in your computer's file; would you mind giving us a link via photobucket, flickr, or other online photo hosting sites?

Its probably set to WEP (open) instead of WPA2 which works best on late model Mac's not to mention very secure.

Thank you. That worked. Does that mean my network was NOT secure before?
