    Blocking adhoc networks
    Hi all, first time poster....

    For the last coupe of months I've been recieving an SSID "hpsetup" from one of the flats surrounding me, presumably from a wireless printer. It's become increasingly frustrating, as everytime I wake my iBook up from sleep, it connects to it instead of my SSID.

    Is there any way I can block these networks? I've found details that suggest you can do it in XP by only choosing to display insfrastructure networks, is there anything similar in OS X?

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    10.5 - System Preferences - Network - Airport - Advanced
    Add your network into the Preferred Networks box and delete the others - it will then auto join your own network.

    Similar in 10.4 - but don't think you have to click on advanced.
    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.
