    At work I am using a wireless network that is hidden and password protected. Elsewhere in the building there is an unsecured wireless network. My Macbook Pro keeps jumping off our wireless network and connecting to this SM Guest wireless network. I have deleted that wireless network but it keeps reappearing. Is there somewhere on Lion OS 10.7.1 that I can block that network so it never shows up.

    TIA

    For lack of me thinking of a better way, I would look into the following command:

    /usr/sbin/airport

    Specifically, "/usr/sbin/airport -I" and "/usr/sbin/airport -a".

    Use those commands in a script to detect your issue and correct it, and then schedule it to run in the background every couple minutes.
