    Just make sure his router has a SID different from his neighbor's and
    instruct his laptop to connect to that SID rather than "ANY".

    |Hi,
    | I have a user who uses a wireless network at home. He
    |just asked me
    |(it's a director) to find a way to avoid his laptop (Toshiba
    |tecra running
    |XP Pro) connecting on the neighbor's router instead of his. He
    |has a D-Link
    |614+, I don't know this model at all so I'm asking you guys if
    |you know a
    |way to restrict his laptop to only HIS router.
    |
    |As you can see, I'm not very familiar with Wireless :/
    |
    |Thanks for any inputs
