Problem connecting when more than one network is in the area

    I just spent several hours with my neighbor trying to get his new wireless
    network set up. The hardware seems to be functioning fine, but it just flat
    out refuses to connect to his router. Rather, his computer insists on
    connecting to MY router. No matter what we did, it would always connect to
    my network instead of his own. When we finally did get it connected to his
    network, it said "network connection unavailable".....but it still worked
    fine. What is going on here? How can we set it up so that he can connect
    seamlessly with his own network, and leave mine alone? :)

    Could you please elaborate on "No matter what we did" -
    enabled broadcasting of SSID? Which WLAN adapter?

    The SSID was broadcasting on both routers (no way to turn it off) and it was
    an Airlink 802.11g adapter.
