Ipaq wireless connection

I have an HP IPAQ 211.  I need to keep it connected to a network.  Occasionally it loses its connection and then connects to another network that is in the area.  Is there a way to prevent it from connecting to the other network or setting it to only connect to the desired network?

    Accepted Solution

    remove the second network credentials (ssid/password combo), or manually disable it.

    Other option is to turn off wireless roaming, so it doesnt' automatically try to connect to any other networks.

    I removed the second network form the list of networks but it comes right back.  

    How do you turn off wireless roaming?

    you only need to do one or the other.  if it continues to try to connect to the second network, you didn't really remove it from the stored list.

    If you mean that your computer disconnects and then you see the second network just listed as an available network, then that's normal... that's what windows will do if it loses the first one.  Do you want to prevent this list from showing?

    Yes, it shows it as available.  I would prefer that it not show and not connect.
