    How do I setup Vista so it only connects to ONE manually added Wireless LAN
    network?

    There's a lot of pages about using the setting "Automatically connect to
    non-preferred networks" to disable Vista's ability to roam to others but I
    don't want them in the list to start with, so they can never be selected. I
    don't want to ever aquire any new networks unless manually added. I'm looking
    for a one-off solution that requires no policing. If the network isn't
    present then there's no connection.

    Incidently the setting "Automatically connect to non-preferred networks"
    doesn't seem to be present in Windows Vista home premium, is it hidden or
    does it have an equivalent? Its setting of "Connect to a more preferred
    network if available" just controls automatic switching and not their
    availability in the first place.

    This thread (

    is the most similar I've found on this group but the solution for me isn't
    valid.

    I should have phrased that slightly differently and said

    How do I setup Vista so it only connects to ONE manually added Wireless LAN,
    and not aquire or use any other networks.
