Do HouseKeeping on Leopard Wireless Connections

Previously, I have written a post here on how to do housekeeping on your Mac's wireless networks in Tiger. For Leopard systems, the settings are slightly different from Tiger.

Just do the following to do some spring cleaning:
  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Click on Network
  3. Click on the Airport, and click on the padlock at the bottom left hand corner to unlock the system preferences for modification (the padlock icon should be unlocked). You will need your administrator userid and password
  4. Click on the Advanced button at the bottom right hand corner.
  5. Under the Preferred Networks section, you will see the list of wireless networks you have ever logged in.
  6. Re-order the preference in which the airport tries to connect to the wireless network by dragging the network name up or down. Use the +, or - button to add or remove wireless network settings.

That's all to it... After doing this housekeeping exercise, your connection to your wireless network should be faster as the Mac will be able to recognise which are your preferred wireless networks.
