    Selecting one of many wireless signals??
    My neighborhood has many secure wireless networks that show up along with my own secure network whenever I boot my iMac or MacBook. Unfortunately, both my computers seem to attempt to link to networks that are not mine.

    At boot time, how can I force the selection of MY network over all the others so that I don't continually have to open the Wi-Fi window and change the selected network from some stranger's to mine?
    21.5" iMac 8GB, 13" MacBook 4GB, iPad2, iPhone 4S, Apple TV, Love 'em all!

    If you've never connected to these networks - it shouldn't try to join that network on its own. You can set the priority by going to Network Preferences > Advanced - then look at the wi-fi tab and drag the networks into the order of your preference.

    And delete all those other networks from the Preferred Network box.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
