    Smile Disable "Connection Failed" Dialogue Box
    Every time I restart my macbook and my iMac G4 they both come up with a Connection Failed box which you just click ok to and it goes away. Does anyone know how to disable this message?

    Shorten the name of your network SSID to one word instead of the long dialog about Windows. Also make sure you're using strong encryption, not WEP.

    I have changed the name since then, but i was wondering if there is any way to make t4he machine just stop looking for the server all together?

    The server here is really your router and network. The connection should be automatic. Make sure that it's your preferred network and at the top of any list of networks that show up in System Preferences, Network, WiFi, Advanced.

    Have a look in your startup items under your user account, the servers might be listed in there.
    I find the best way to locate rogue DHCP servers is to send 240V down the appropriate port. Follow the smoke.
