How can I tell if my network is secure?

Before I took my laptop in for repairs, the screen would show a locked padlock to the left of the name of the network if it was secure. Now it doesn't show anything.

You have to reconfigure your router everytime you reset it as it goes back to unsecured network.

It seems that previously you are using secure network ....now it is unsecure network ....
Follow this steps ....
Access setup page of router .....
Click on the Wireless tab on the Setup page- Here Wireless Network mode
should be mixed- Provide any non linksys network name ....
Name (SSID) box- Set wireless channel to 11- And wireless SSID
broadcast should be Enabled and then click on "Save Settings" >>Now
Click on the Sub tab under wireless > "Wireless Security" Change the
Wireless security mode to "WEP/WPA"...have a note of the key ... click save settings ...

If you are using Admin as your password to log on to your router, change it to something else.  Anyone within range of your router can log into your router and access your passkey for your wireless.
