Specs: Windows XP
my boyfriend well soon to be ex, keeps taking the laptop off of me to "punish" me i guess when he doesnt get his way cuz hes immature. it was my laptop but since he paid for it i guess its his now. whatever, anyways i wanted to know if there was a way to temporarily block all wireless networks from showing up since we use my friends network whos my neighbor she will just put in a password and protect it. but he can still get on a couple others in the neighborhood and i wanted to know how i could temporarlily block all wireless connections from showing up? thanx so much!!!!

Sounds like a case for Judge Judy.

If he bought the laptop for you as a gift, it's yours, not his. Since you're splitting up, why do you let him use the laptop at all? And why is he still "in the neighborhood"? And who the heck doesn't encrypt their wireless signal these days? I think you have other issues that need fixing & they sure can't be solved in a computing forum.

But to answer your question - the only way to prevent the wireless signals from showing up is to disable the wireless in the laptop. Of course, all he'd have to do is turn it back on again.

There are lots of fish in the sea. Some are keepers others get tossed back.

It looks like he is teaching you to be just like him....he denies you the computer so now you want to deny him access to the internet.

If in fact you feel that it's his computer then it's hands off for you. If yours then password protect it.......but don't be surprised by the negative outcome when he looses use of the computer.

Get a new boyfriend and a new laptop. Both are a dime a dozen.

thanx guys yeah i know hes a.... well u get the idea. and what he did was got the computer with that verizon promo and then said after i had three, yes three, desktops that he broke, he said that the laptop was the "families" and not just mine. imagine that lol. whatever. the only reason i dont keep it and do that is because it will cause a huge fight in front of our three kiddos and i just dont want that. however yes i am moving out and getting rid of him thank the Lord for that miracle. but i just wanted to find a way to block him out without him knowing that i did it ya know. i use the computer for taking surveys and doing product testing so i can make a little extra cash since he uses that against me as well. but thanx everyone for all the replies i really do appreciate it. and no i wasnt trying to be like him i dont want him jacking up this computer. but o well i will probably just end up giving it to him anyways when i move cuz im getting another one from my 'rents its jsut in the meantime i need it because if i keep missing all my surveys and such im losing money and possibly my spot on the panels. thanx again guys!!! :)
