    Every time I open up my IBook it connects to a neighbors network, which is slower with a worse signal. Is there any way to prioritize which network my computer connects to so I can make my home network name the one that it tries first?

    The Kop
    System Preference - Network - Airport - Airport - By Default, join - Preferred networks (Change to it from Automatic).

    Sort them into the order you wish to connect to.

    Remove your neighbours is you dont want to connect to it.

    If you go into the System Preferences, and then click on the Network icon, and select the airport from the list of the available networks. As soon as the Airport settings are opened, in the Airport tab you can choose which networks your computer joins, just change from Automatic to Preffered Networks

    EDIT: Whoops, i was late.

    thanks. I knew there was a way but was making it way too complicated and missed it staring me in the face
