are 2 ways to get to your airport network preferences. One is to click
on the airport icon
on the top right of the menu bar, then choose open network preferences
from the drop down menu. The other way is to go to the Apple menu on
the top left and choose System Preferences from the drop down menu.
Either way you will find the airport network preferences. Here you
if you want the computer to ask you to before joining a new network.
I generally recommend that you leave this on for security reasons.
You can click on the network name button and choose other available
to switch to. Click on the advanced tab and you will be given a whole
new set of choices. The first airport tab lists all of the networks
that you have previously joined. You may choose to delete networks
from this list if you wish or rearrange them in order you’d prefer
to join. The only other tab you may need to use is Appletalk. Sometimes
on certain networks in order to print to a networked printer you must
have Appletalk active. Simply check here to activate and click ok.
If you would prefer not to have the airport icon appear in your menu
simply click here and it will disappear.
