    Hopeful for an easy way to avoid the connection of imac with to other unlocked wifi networks. (OS 10.8.2) Additionally can I lock this preference?

    System Preferences > Network > AirPort > Advanced > AirPort > Preferred Networks (click the "-" to remove those networks from the list, if they appear there)

    Also, make sure "Ask to join new networks" is checked on the Network pane.

    Open System Preferences->Network tab, Advanced button, TCP/IP and make sure only your wireless network is there. Then go back to the main Network pane and click on the Lock button to lock the System Preference pane.
