    When you want to select a network and it says other and asks you to enter a name and security or something what is it...?

    it is asking you to set up an wi fi network, if you know of any. the name is of the network & most wifi networks are password protected with WEP or WPA which is stronger than WEP but not all networks are compatible with it.

    wifi networks aren't as widespread as the iphone EDGE network which uses the cell range (like a mobile) if you're saying an hour in distance then no, its too far out to connect to your wifi home network. (correct me if im wrong)
