To be or not to be Connected (wireless network)

Opening up the "view wireless connections" it says that im not connected when im writing this as I speak on the internet...it also says unsecured....how do I secure this...(pretend I know nothing about computers when replying)....also when it disconnects since my router upstairs and im in the basement, how do I set it so it automatically reconnects to this particular network??? any feedback to these questions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Wireless G router Belkin
sony vaio laptop s360
winxp home edition
router is set on a custom built gamer pc with mic xp

p.s. I know a little about pc but nothing about networking.
