Hello, I have a Windows 7 computer HP...and my wireless (Belkin USB)keep trying to connect to others networks for some reason and makes me lose signal quite alot. How do I prevent it from doing this?

When I open up the list of networks in range and click on one of the other peoples networks the box saying "Connect automatically" is checked. But when I try to uncheck it it keeps coming up as checked again. I have also opened up network and sharing centre and opened up the list and made sure only my network is on the list.

So what I want is to hide EVERYTHING except my network if possible...

Hope that someone can help...please ask more questions if needed.

Thank you.

The way wireless works is it connects automatically to the one with the best signal, and looking at the one you want to connect to the signal is very poor and that is why you are connecting to the other networks.

What is checked when you right click on the network you want to connect to and select properties:

Connect if this network is in range AND Connect even if the network is not broadcasting its name SSID

That X could be problematic, and there is no way to my knowledge that you can remove the available networks from that window. Has it ever done that before?

Yes when the connection is done I can only get internet access when it turns into an X/ Sometimes it just shows the bars
