    How do I ensure my computer connects to my router and not another wireless
    access point? It's not as though we're in a city, there's only 30 houses in
    the village, but it tries to connect to BT Openzone or another company's
    service. I changed to a new router 2 days ago, and reinstalled Windows 7 (64
    bit) 2 days before that (not for this reason) but it still happens everytime
    I boot up. The box 'connect automatically' is checked against my own router,
    and I have used inSSIDer to make sure my router is on a channel well away
    from the others (I'm on 3 with bareyl any overlap).
    Any help greatly appreciated.

  2. There should be a setting within Network connections that allows you to
    specify the preferred connection or the order of preference. This is
    accessed from the control panel.

    All I can find is a check box - 'automatically connect when this access
    point is within range' which is already checked.

    Is there a similar box for the other WiFi Access Points which you can
    uncheck ?
