Over the last few days I've lost my internet connections more times than I've had it, although I appear often to be online according to my computer and the lights are on on my router (BT HomeHub). When I go to see if I can connect to a network sometimes I can see my network (sometimes not), but I also see an unsecured Network BRCM_TEST_SSID, and I suspect this may have something to do with things. I cannot connect to this but seem to remember it being there in the past.
Anyone have any ideas and am I right in suspecting that my computer it trying to connect to this rather than my own.
I'm not technical in the least so responses in plain English would be really appreciated.

Broadcom mke chipsets and they are fitted to many routers etc. Did not know that a test signal was transmitted on startup hayburn. In anycase I'd be surprised if such a signal was transmitted for more that a few hundred mS or a second at the most. This sounds as though something is not working properly on somebody's wireless router/modem.
