Windows connects automatically to unconfirmed WiFi networks
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop, with Windows7 home x64 .
As soon as I turn my computer on and the system finds available connections, the system connects itself automatically to the first WiFi network it finds.
Usually this would be my home network, which is fine. But occasionally, this would be my neighbor's unprotected network, which is not as fine. Potentially, this could be a malicious network, monitoring my internet traffic, which is not fine at all !!
A possible solution might be to check upon system start that the correct network is used. However, if the connection is accidently broken, for whatever reason, the system again connects itself to the next available network, which is again problematic.
How can I stop this automatic WiFi connections?
