You need to disable auto connect on a network by network basis. Make sure
your network is configured so the "Automatically connect when this network
is within range" checkbox is CHECKED and the "Connect to a more preferred
network if available" checkbox is UNCHECKED. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb878035.aspx
If you have connected to a neighbors wireless network in the past you can
delete those networks in the preferred list. Open up "Network and Sharing
Center" then look at the "Manage wireless networks" over on the left. You
can highlight each wireless network you connected to and remove it if you
wish or reconfigure to auto connect or not, etc...etc...
