Switching servers with wireless

by Litllaur0122 / August 3, 2004 12:12 AM PDT

For the past week or so my laptop which has wireless internet has continually been switching between available wireless networks. We use the linksys and that is all that has ever worked on my computer. I assume the rest of these networks are those established on neighbors computers whose singals are stronger then our own. However the network that allows me to access the internet is our network linksys.

I live in a city with a dense population of people.

I realize this is probably a common problem but I was wondering if there was anything we could do to maintain access to our network and our network only without the constant switching.

Any help would be greatley appreciated!

Linksys needs to fix this.

The current version of Linksys drivers are "too friendly" about this. It would be nice if they had a way to check off a "don't use anything but these networks" option.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
