When you get back, take a moment to check my theory...

1. Click on the little icon that looks like a computer screen near the right side of the taskbar, (on my machine it's just to the left of the time).

2. At the top there should be your "wired" connection(s). Normally, it (or one of them) will indicate "Connected".

3. Under that there should be a faint white line.

4. Below the white line there should be a list of wifi signals, one will be yours, the rest are others within detection range.

Do any of the wifi connections have the word "Connected" associated with it (them)?
If so, click on "disconnect", and see if your results change.

I'm back.

I think that all those unknown devices belong to my sister's network. But I don't know why when I double click on them I get that their network is fritzbox which is mine and not theirs.

Anyway. I will let it here for now. My mind is so full (perhaps so empty, I really can't understand!!! ) for the moment, so thank you all for the suggestions!

P.S. I just realized that my printer cannot print anymore, because it is not connected to the network. I guess that it's because I changed the passwords. I can't connect it. So please, if you have suggestions for this...

I would try a simple thing first ... turn the printer off, count to 10, then power it back on and let it initialize.  See if it connects to the network ...

Thanks, Winchester. I already done this.

What I did:
1. Turned the printer off, wait, and then turned it on.
2. Turned the router off, wait and then turned it on.
3. Turned the router off, then the printer, wait and then turned them on.
4. Turned the printer off, then the router, wait and then turned them on.
5. Tried to add the printer again, from the control panel (add a printer). The wizard cannot see the printer.
6. Tried to install it mannually.

Nothing. The wifi button continues to blink on the printer, and the status is not connected.

The network image you posted shows an HP something, is your printer from HP? You’ll need to reconnect the printer to your wif network now that the password is changed. Found this for HP: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/wireless-printing-center/printer-setup-help.html

yes. I have an HP 3636 printer. Do I have to use the usb cable to connect it with the computer?

That's what a quick online search suggests - connecting using USB and then opening the Printer Setup utility to put in the WiFi settings.

Found this post here - copying the relevant part below. Note that they do not want you to connect the printer using USB until the software tells you to. Given you set up the printer before, you probably have the software already on your computer, and can hopefully skip that download step.

First thing, I would suggest here is to perform restore network defaults on the printer.
 
(Aaron - They used an image here for these instructions. Essentially, the step is hold the wireless and the cancel (red X) buttons for 3 seconds to reset the WiFi settings)
 
I would suggest you install the printer using the USB cable and then convert the USB connected printer to Wireless to get it connected to the network. Here are the steps:
 
First, click on  http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software13/printers/dj3630/DJ3630__Full_WebPack_1107.exe to download and install the printer drivers.
In the Connectivity tab, select "USB"
Connect the USB cable and finish the printer installation.
 
If you want to change from a USB to wireless network connection, use the Printer Setup & Software utility that installed with your printer software:
 
Search for the printer name, and then click the name of your printer.
The printer software opens.
Click Tools, and then click Device Setup & Software.
Select the option which says "Convert a USB printer to Wireless"
Follow the onscreen instructions and complete the installation.

Thank you, Aaron.  :)

Try and error method solved the problem, and now I have wifi printing back. I will not ever touch the router or turn the wifi off again!!!

Great! Yes, it's good to leave things be when they're working, but if you ever need to do something like update the router's software or something and the off-chance happens that you have to set up the printer again, you know you can do it :)
