Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.To prevent your computer from connecting to the wrong network, you will need to remove it from your network history. To do this, click on the apple logo, choose system preferences. Choose Network. Then click on the Advance button at the bottom right corner. In the Wifi tab, you will see a list of all the networks your computer has connected to, find fossilfool-guest and remove it from the list
Then drag fossilfool to the top of the list
And press ok
Thanks. It still appears in the wireless list. How do I turn it off?
Select it and then select the minus sign
Then drag your main network to the top of the list. That way your computer will see your network first
I meant to say that it still appears in the list at the top taskbar next to the volume icon.
Oh Im sorry, you will need to disable guest network on your router. Do you remember setting it up?
Who is your service provider and what router are you using?
cisco E1000. Provider is Monkeybrains. (local to SF)
Is fossilfooll password XXXXX too?
but it doesn't take me to a Cisco page
Can you search your applications folder for Cisco connection application
don't have one
Ok, to disable it you will need to go to you router configuration page. I am looking up the correct address for your router. Give me a sec
Ok, I have it. Can you click on this link and tell me what comes up 192.168.1.1
A username and password XXXXX being requested by http://192.168.1.1. The site says: "E1000"
I assume you don't remember your password. If not, you will need to reset your router and then set it up again
Try some username and passwords, if that does not work, no worries. Let me know and I will walk you through the rest process
By default the password XXXXX be admin with no username
The default and my usual didn't work
Ok so lets rest your router. Before we do that, on the back or bottom of your router, locate the SSID and web key
Is this going to work? I don't have a hard line handy.
Yes it is going to work. We will be disconnected but we will be re-connected once you enter your network password XXXXX Before we do that, you can try to log into your router settings again using the link provided. Just type in admin as the password XXXXX username blank. If you are still unable to log in, take note of your SSID and web key password XXXXX your router because you will need it to log back in.
I got too busy to continue with this process but was satisfied by the help from Appleologist.
