I have one wireless connection in my building, but it often does not work
so I arranged with a neighbor to use their account when my connection was weak
but now even when my account is working well, my wireless manager (win 7) is automatically loading the neighbor account
I checked Control Panel, -->network and internet, --> Network and sharing -->and the neighbor's wireless account was listed as the main adapter
so whenever I try to start my native connection, the message comes on : cannot connect....
whenever I have tried to reconnect to my native account it asks for the password (security key) over and over but still does not connect
I tried going into "change adapter settings" and disabled the neighbor account, but then all my connections disappeared
then I went into "Manage wireless networks" and removed the neighbor account. I know this does not really remove a connection, because it will still show up in connection settings in the lower right corner of the screen taskbar and I can reconnect if I just put in the security key again (fingers crossed)
Now my native account seems to be working again.
I wouid like to know what the problem was and why I cannot just use the neighbor account as secondary backup. If my native account goes down again and I try to connect to the neighbor account I am afraid the same problem will happen.
I want to be able to connect to strongest connection at any one time.
Any suggestions welcome.
