I have a baby Acer that I use for travel and doctor office waits which can be quite long at times.  My question is can I set it up to have to manually select a WIFI connection?  Many of these places have multiple routers offering many connections, the LT hooks to or tries to hook to any convenient connection many of which are secure so the public is blocked, I would like to be able to chose the connection I want and weed out the others.

There is a setting you can uncheck to Automatically connect.  Click on the wireless connection icon, then right the SSID(name of the network), click Properties, Connection tab and that's where it is. =)


Hope this helps thumbup.gif
