I live in a retirement community that has wi-fi.   Their system doesn't allow devices to see each other, so I paid for regular cable Internet access and plugged in my wireless router.    It's in the room with my wife's iPad and allows us to connect with our wireless printer as well as each other.


The trouble is, a couple of times per week I discover my iMac trying to connect to the other Wi-Fi (there's a logon screen to connect).   I have my own network at the top of my Preferred networks.    My wife's Mac doesn't seem to have this problem, it stays with the wireless router network.
