Windows 7 x32, btw. (desktop, in my profile)


Have you tried clicking the networking icon and disconnecting the xnetwork from there. There is also a connect auto matically box that you can uncheck

You can also click the notification icon then right click the network in question & select properties then the 'Connection' tab then de-select 'Connect automatically when this network is in range'.

See, I have no link/option to click the network. Well, I can click it, but it's just black text that does nothing when I click on it. Thoughts?
