LGx120 netbook SOMETIMES wont connect to the internet? Help!

Hello everyone.

Okay, so I have a LG x120 and I have had it since last August I believe. It has been running just fine.
Now, I am a university student and I go home for the summer and back for school in the fall.

This fall when I moved back and into a new house I discovered I have a problem - My internet WONT connect to the wirless in my house! :S Yet, the other five computers in the house hold (my housemates PLUS my own desktop) are fine and the can connect and always are.
I try to scan for wireless network connections within range and nothing comes up - yet on the other computers there are local area connections.

This has been going on since sometime in the summer when I came down to visit the house - couldnt connect to the net via the wireless but could via a direct cable.

I also realized that when I am in other areas now, yes my internet will connect to wireless - but just like when im in my house it says that there are NO local area connections.
I also suddenly dont seem to have control over when my wireless will connect.
I will turn on my netbook - refresh the list to see nothing. Then I have to sit there from 2 - like 10 minutes and all off a sudden my netbook just magically decides to connect??!

I really have NO idea whats wrong with the thing. We have a linksy router at my house if it helps.

Also I have checked the obvious - yes my wireless IS turned on XD lol.

But could someone pleasssse help me in some way??

I dont know otherwise how I would go about getting this kind if a problem fixed. So I hope you guys maybe know!

Thank you !!
