At the school there are a number of different wireless networks. When my powerbook senses them it prompts me about "whether I would like to link to the network automatically from now on?"<br><br>I clicked yes on one of them and it turned out to be some HP computer-to-computer network that I have no interest in. Now, every time I open up my powerbook it connects to that network automatically and I have to manual disconnect it.<br><br>Anyone know what preference or keychain file I need to trash to make it go back and ask me the question again? I want to say No!<br><br>
From Mac Help:<br><br>Choosing your preferred AirPort network<br><br>If you often switch between several different locations, and you use an AirPort network in each one, you can choose your preferred AirPort network for each network location you create. When you switch to a different location, your computer will connect to your preferred AirPort network.<br><br>1 Open Network preferences, and then choose the location you want to set up, or choose New Location from the Location pop-up menu.<br><br>2 Choose AirPort from the Show pop-up menu, and click AirPort.<br><br>3 Choose "A specific network" from the "By default, join" pop-up menu, and enter a name and password for the AirPort network you prefer.<br><br>By default, Automatic is selected in the "By default, join" pop-up menu. With Automatic selected, your computer will find the nearest network and try to connect to it.<br><br>
You da man! <br><br>I set it to "preferred networks" and there was the list of authorized networks that would be connected automatically. Just had to highlight the worthless one and hit delete. Thanks Steve!<br><br>
