I am finding that when I connect to the internet these days I keep picking up a signal from a neighbour who as not secured their PC.
They tell me that an engineer came along and altered the name from the name of the router to just plain wireless. But I pick up the new name they gave me which is secured but I still pick up the name of the old router which is unsecured. My question is could it be their router or do I look for another neighbour with a similar named router which could mean knocking at everyones door.
I'd be inclined to set your router as the default connection (i.e. connect automatically when in range, make sure this option isn't set for any other network). That should solve your problem, unless i've missed something?
I will not say anything to my neighbours,but what is so annoying is their signal is nearly as strong as mine and being unsecured my PC tends to pick up their signal very often instead of mine and I am constantly resetting it.I would prefer to connect to my network and no one elses.I cannot understand why it does not go for mine being stronger.
