Strange Shifting Problem

When I shift while in motion it shifts me to one gear higher then I selected on the shifter. Example: I shift into 5th it puts me into 6th, I shift to 3rd I go into fourth. Whats wrong with my derillier or what ever its called?

It is out of adjustment. There is a nut that holds the shift cable in place on the derailer, loosen it to adjust the location of the derailer in reference to the position of the selector. Some bikes have a thumbscrew on the selector end of the cable that allows you to make adjustments.
