Default wireless network

Hey,

Helped a neighbor setup a two Windows 7 laptops.
Did it at my house on my wireless network.
Now their laptops default to my network on restart & they get little or no signal.
How do I make their wireless network the go to default on re-start, etc.

thanks,

fmg

If these are Win 7 computers, left click on the internet access icon in the system tray.

Click on your network (the one they are connected to and select disconnect. Now select their network and connect.

Once they are connected, again click on the icon and right click on their network and select proprieties. Select the Connection tab and make sure the first box is checked.

Disconnect from yours ... connect to theirs ... delete yours from the default list.
