Can I lock my Macs airport to my wireless network. When I turn my Mac on it connects to a neighbours wireless broadband and I have to switch it over to mine, can I lock it to mine only.

Open System Preferences, Network, Advanced. Click on the Airport tab. Under preferred networks, make sure your network is showing and move it to the top. You can then remove (use the - ) other networks that show up in your local neighborhood so that you do not inadvertently join them.
