How to block a nearby/neighbor's WiFi network
Seems every time I sleep my Macbook Pro, the network it connects
to is a nearby (neighbor?) unencrypted network. I then go in and manually
select my home's encrypted MaxRange Netgear 811.n router just fine.
My question is ... is there a way to ban/block the outside network from
being seen during the connection process (or even from being seen in the
airport icon up in the MBP's menu)?
Thanks for your guidance forum!

Remove it from your preferred networks, and check the box "Ask to join new netowrks."

EDIT: darn, ^^ beat me to it.
Come to my Twitter, it's warm and has chairs.

Slight problem ... although I have a TC in my network, the primary network
is the Netgear router which is not seen by the Airport utility - any suggestions
for what I do now?
OK ... forgot about checking the SP for network/airport settings ... I think I've removed the offending network,
so let's see how things go ... thanks again!!
