We are using windows Vista. We are connected to a wired DSL connection. There was a wireless connection named Belkin 54g if I recall correctly. The computer would keep connecting to this wireless connection even though we were using the DSL connection for the internet. The computer has Acer eNet management running on it. Through the windows wireless network settings I deselected the three settings for the Belkin connection (Connect when this network is in range, and two others, I think something about connect even while the connection is not online, I can't remember what the other one said). It said manually connect in the one section. Even though it was set on manually connect the connection would still automatically connect. I also tried to disconnect from the wireless network using the Acer eNet software, it would disconnect but still reconnect seconds later. This was while it was still set to manually connect to Belkin 54g. Since that didn't work I clicked on the Acer eNet icon and opened the window and selected the Belkin connection and clicked on disable thinking maybe it would lock out the connection from connecting anymore, but instead it just shut off the wireless completely.
I was wondering how to turn the wireless back on, (I am able to view i think the wireless component in the device manager, but I don't know what settings to change to get it back on). And if anyone knows how to block that Belkin connection to stop connecting to this computer. When I was viewing the network connection information I also noticed the dsl line said local and internet, but the Belkin connection said local only, should this be of any concern?
