    When I go up under the top menu on the right for Airport and the list of Network's, how do I get rid of one [not mine] that keeps showing up there?

    The only reason for this is that when I open my laptop, it keeps trying to join that one instead of my own and then I have to go up and change to mine. More an irritation than anything. Thanks

    To remove unwanted networks:
    System Preferences > Network > Airport > Advanced > Select the network you do not want and click "-" or move yours above it.

    The menubar list shows every network that's broadcasting within range of your computer, whether you want it to or not it will. The latter will help prevent joining unwanted networks.
