Big-D is probably someone nearby with a wireless connection and when you searched you picked it up.
Have you tried rebooting the modem/router? Just disconnect the power cable for about 10-20 seconds and then reconnect. Give it a few minutes and then connect to see if it helped.
Is the linksys connection yours? You have a modem and a router connection in your house?

If Big-D is your sisters then that means its your too. Use that connection instead of the linksys connection
