Angry Please help! WiFi card only half works!

Hi all

All of my Broadcom wireless drivers work, and I can connect to my home wireless network just fine, because it was the very first network I connected to in my installation of PCLOS. But here's the trouble: Whenever I try to connect to ANOTHER network, my computer insists that it is an AdHoc connection, the signal strength is 0%, and the internet just doesn't work, then when I try to connect to my home network again, it still has the AdHoc problem! IT ISN'T AN ADHOC CONNECTION!!!, then what I do is restart the computer, and I am re-connected to my home network, which works fine.
Do I have to reinstall PCLOS every time I want to change networks because the only one that WORKS is the very first one you connect to?

OS: PClinuxOS 2007
WiFi Manager: KWiFiManager
My current patience: ABOUT TO EXPLODE!

Any help will really be appreciated!
