My flat is covered by a number of wireless networks. When I move from room to room the notebook connects automatically to the strongest it can find. How can I set the preferences to stay connected to my own wireless router?

In ubuntu?

I assume all of these networks are probably named linksys?

Give your wireless a custom name in the router config.

delete all other wireless connections from your computer.

Network connections, wireless...delete other networks

With a unique name on your wireless, you will always know you are on yours. Password protect it to.
