    I have an ibook, and I use it with a dlink access point, everything works great. The problem I have is that a house near mine has a linksys AP, and sometimes when I start up my ibook it associates to there AP. How can I force my ibook to use only my AP, or ignore just that AP??

    In your System Preferences -> Network, select your Airport card. Then, instead of selecting Automatic for your Join, select your AP.

    In the System Preferences, go to the Network section and under AirPort, you can select to join By Default or Preferred Networks. If you select Preferred Networks, you can select your own above your neighbours, or even delete your neighbours if you want to.

    Also under Network tab, if you select "Options" in the lower left hand area, it gives you the option to have it "Ask befor joining an open network", etc. Might be helpful.
