A neighbor's wireless network is more powerful than mine, so my MacBookPro selects every time.  How can I eliminate the network of neighbour from the airport to the research?

Wireless network from a neighbor is always "found" by my Airport first, then my MacBook links to it.  But I want to find my own network, of course.  Question: How can I remove this neighbor of the network function research network?  Is it still possible?  In other words, I want my laptop to ignore this network around when I wake up from my laptop.

On your Mac laptop...

Open the preferences system (gear on the dock icon)

Open network

Click WiFi on the left panel to select

Click Advanced in the bottom right of the window

Here you can see the list of networks that 'remembers' your laptop and connect to the network at the top of the list first.  If you want the laptop to connect to a specific network, click the network name to highlight, and then drag it to the top of the list.

Now, click to highlight a network that you do not want your laptop to 'remember', then click on the - (less) button at the bottom of the list to remove the network. Do the same for other networks that you no longer need.

Click OK at the bottom right of the window

Click on apply in the next window that appears

Close the windows and then restart your Mac.

  • Satellite A100-529: How can I enable the wireless network adapter

    Hi all!

    I'm new here, but I want to know how can I activate the wireless network device. On my Toshiba Satellite A100-529 keyboard is a Fn key that must be pressed with the F8 key to turn on the wireless network device. I did, but it does not work.

    What can I do to turn on my wireless device?
    Thank you!

    You are right. The FN + F8 key combination should be used to switch to the WLan card.

    But look, man. Have you checked if your laptop supports wireless network card?
    I think it does not support the minPCI wireless network card and the card does not exist!

    That's why the WLan card cannot be activated :) you know ;)

  • How can I find the WEP key for my wireless network so that I can connect to it?

    How can I find the WEP key

    Steps to find a WEP key:

    1. open a browser (the program used to access the internet). The following process worked for me when using the

    Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera browsers, although I'm not sure it will work for other browsers (for example

    Chrome, Safari etc.).

    2 type the following in the address bar of the browser. If you use a Linksys router type in "192.168.1.1" and if

    using a type of router Belkin "192.168.2.1". The address bar is the area where the Web pages are typed. It is important

    When you enter there is NO http://www. before the numbers.

    3. If everything is is well past that should open a page which says that Linksys or Belkin.

    3. There may be the need of connection. When you use a Linksys if you don't know what are the user name and password, it may

    always be the factory settings and then enter "admin" for the username and "password" for the password. If you are using a

    Belkin router, the factory settings often come without password, click just send without having to type a password.

    4. click on one) "wireless" or b) "settings".

    5. click one) "Wireless security" or b) "wireless settings".

    6. There should be a page with a specified WEP key.

    7 writing it to the down/copy and use as you wish!

  • How can I use my drive hard thunderbolt from 8 TB to backup all my wireless devices?

    How can I configure my drive hard thunderbolt from 8 TB to back up all my devices using a Wi - Fi connection?

    What you might hope better would be to use a Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter to connect to the router, but even if it works, it would be like a fire (Thunderbolt) connection to a water hose (Ethernet) is launching... and expect to get more water on the hose... more, the best that can be done without wire will be about half the speed of the Ethernet network.

    Sorry, this is no sense... a Thunderbolt drive is designed to connect directly to a Thunderbolt port on a computer, or in a Garland with other devices Thunderbolt.

    In other words, as soon as you break the chain of connection Thunderbolt, the speed drops to Ethernet or even low speed wireless.

  • How can I ignore the networks

    I still see a lot of WLANs one my mac searches for a long time until it detects my network. How can I ignore the other visible networks?

    Where do you see them? When you click the icon on the taskbar menus or in Network preferences? If the first, they are simply being picked up by your choose wireless networks. They disappear once you have chosen your network. If the latter then open network preferences and click on the Advanced button. You should see all these networks in the list box. Select the ones you don't want and click on the delete button [---] to delete. This should prevent the computer tries to select one network other than your own. Click on the OK button, and then click the apply button.

  • [Solved] How can I view the properties of a network connection?

    = Solution:

    I activated the "Netman" service (friendly name: "Network connections").

    =====

    Don't forget that? Yes. I've seen one of them because I've gone from WinXP to Win7.

    Note: The image above was extracted from the Internet. It is not my computer.

    See the checkbox "Show icon in notification area when connected"? That's how I got Windows XP configured so that I would see a network for each network adapter icon in the tray all the time. Now I never see a network icon. I want to be able to bring up the properties so I can solve network problems.

    My new Manager computer devices">"Network adapters"indicates:

    Intel Centrino WiMAX 6150
    Intel Centrino Wireless-N 6150
    Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adapt
    Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adapt #2

  • How can I control the number of clients connecting to one or more access points?

    Hi guys,.

    I am using several access points LWAPP/CAPWAP (1010, 1131, 1142) connected to the 4400 series wlan controllers (OS Version 4.2 and 7.0).

    Regarding the client connection to access points, I have several questions:
