Go to the properties of the wireless NIC
Click on the wireless networks tab
Click advanced (near the bottom)
Check the access point (infrastructure) networks only radio button
make sure automatically connect to non-preferred networks is unchecked
close the advance tab
Delete the neighbors network from the preferred networks area
OK out of everything

You should be set.

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 
614+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
