aomething that's bit me a couple times.....


i have wi-fi from my Airport,
but there's someone out there with a wi-fi that's NOT secured...

for some unknown reason, every once in a while, my MacBook switched from mine to theirs

and i lose contact with my printer (since it's plugged in to the Airport)
.... first time i notice this, thought my printer had died and there was much flailing around till i noticed the problem.

next time it happened i knew to look.


just tried speedtest.net and may have found WHY the MacBook switched:
other wi-fi is way faster. Even though iSumbler seems to say it's a much weaker signal

???
