Aggressive wifi

Hi there

Got real problem at home on my laptop with some wifi, mainly BFTON and BT Openzone-H.

When I am quite happily connected to my preffered network these 2 keep taking over, but

the problem is they don't allow me internet connection

I have removed them from my wireless network connection but they keep returning....

Driving me crazy any advice greatly appreciated...Thanks Valerie

Hi Valerie,

Hi Valerie,

Two questions. Are you running Windows (which version XP, Vista, 7?) or Mac?

If on Windows, are you using a third party utility to control your wireless settings, or is it the wireless manager built into the OS?

Hi Matt

Hi Matt

Sorry it's taken so long to reply...I am using Windows 7 and the wireless manager built into the OS.
Thanks

Given you have received no

Given you have received no reply to date, I would suggest changing the network setting which says more or less, 'look for other networks'. There is a setting in 7 networking that you can change so it won't look for networks.
