    At my work place, there is a secure wifi n/w for which I cannot login (company does not support iphones). So everytime I open up an app/safari, I get the popup window to connect to the n/w. It becomes quite irritating after a while:mad:
    Is there a way to disable it for this particular n/w?
    I dont want to disable the global option as I would like to have it popup when I am somewhere else.

    Settings> Wifi> On> Click network you dont want like you're going to join it> Click blue arrow> Forget this network.

    Instead of "forget this n/w", I am looking more for "dont show this n/w anymore".
    For eg: if the wifi n/w "macrumors" is in range, when I open up Safari, by default, I get the window:
    Select a Wi-Fi Network
    macrumors

    I would like it to not show macrumors atall and therefore if it is the only wifi n/w in range, I wont get the window "Select a Wi-Fi Network"

    Yeah, that doesn't ignore the network. It just forgets it until you go out of range. When you come back, it will ask if you want to join.

    This would be a nice feature, since one often encounters private networks in a given location that one would regularly like to exclude.

    You would also need to turn off 'ask to join networks'.
