Wifi Connecting to Random Networks...


I'm wondering how to make my wireless adapter connect to only a certain network. I'm trying to make it connect to my wireless network but in my house it finds about 10 different connections and disconnects me from my hub and connects to another.

Hi,

When configuring your wi-fi card you can put the ESSID name of your network and it will try connecting to that network only. Take a look at this thread:

You can find here a details how to setup your card using wpa security key also.
