    Every day I boot up near an open wireless network and get the message 'None of your trusted wireless networks can be found. Would you like to join the open wireless network named "***"'.

    Is there a way to disable this message, I'm never going to want to join this network.

    Easiest way would be to sleep your machine instead of shutting it down.

    Turn airport off? Or do you use it every now and again for other purposes? If so then Make a new Network Location (System prefs>Network>Location>New Location) with Airport disabled, and use that one whenever you don't want to use Airport.

    The easiest way is to just turn AirPort off.

    If you want to keep AirPort on, but not connected unless a trusted network is nearby, then follow these steps
    • Open System Preferences
    • Click Network
      (If necessary, double-click AirPort)
    • In the AirPort tab, click Options...
    • Choose "If no preferred networks are found: Keep looking for recent networks"

    Thanks that works nicely.

    I'm wanting to keep AirPort on as I use that at home and I never remember to turn it off before shutting down.

    How to make one a trusted network

    I want a network that doesn't auto sign in. The network shows in my airport menu and the airport is on. I can sign on with the pull down menu --but it won't auto sign in.

    Any ideas?

    thanks agsayer
