    Hi guys!

    I'm using a white 13" Macbook to stream a radio station to my workplace, this computer is at home, and I'm looking for a way to guarantee that its signal will be on 24/7.

    Software-wise everything is great, my only issue is mi ISP will sometimes stop sending signal to my computer, so my modem dies for 2-5mins, after that my computer won't automatically reconnect to my network.

    Since I can't really ask my ISP to provide me with a 100% connection, I was thinking I should get another network with a Different ISP, so the chances of both of them failing at the same time are minimal.

    My problem is here, I'm looking for a way for the computer to automatically connect to "WIFI HOME2" in case it cant find "WIFI HOME1", and viceversa.

    And after that it could connect again to "WIFI HOME1" in case it finds it again.

    What is the correct approach to solving this problem? Applescripts? network Configuration?

    In case it matter, the macbook is laying in a desk closed, but still awake using the "NoSleep" App.

    Thanks for the help!

    You could definitely use AppleScript to make this happen. As far as the lid being closed and the Mac not going to sleep, this shouldn't be an issue.

    Also, have you tried the computer to computer setting under Network > Advanced?
