Disconnecting

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?ZGtlbGxpbmc=?=, May 3, 2005.

  1. I am using a Dell laptop with buil-in wireless. I connect to my home wireless
    network with WEP encryption enable. I connect to the network and works okay
    for a few minutes. The it will say on bottom right that "one or wireless
    connections are available". Then I have to go back and select connect to my
    home network again. Is there anyway to tell it to ignore other networks or
    connect only to my network?

    Thanks

    Yes. Look in the advanced Wireless settings (right-click on the
    connection). There is a place to tell it to only connect to preferred
    networks. Here are some links to wireless information that might be
    helpful to you:
