I have a poor wifi spot in this house, distance being the issue. After it drops, if I don't get on the wireless password request and get the computer reconnected in a certain amount of time, Linux queries the empty room again, and again. I assume I'd end up with something like this, but I didn't think to check it: http://imgur.com/3egL8. Is there any way to get the thing not to ask me every 5 minutes if I don't get back to it? It's not like asking the room at large repeatedly is going to help when I'm not here.
