HI,

You should turn off SSID broadcast.  He is picking up his neighbour's
network because the neighbour is broadcasting his SSID's.

You should be able to go into the wireless properties and specify his
SSID as the default network. You should also setup WEP on his wireless
router and PCI card as well, this way anyone with a wireless card will
not be able to access his router. Since he is a director, he propably
has important info that is vulnerable until the access point is locked
down. Hope this helps...

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
