How do you “View available wireless networks” with a Mac? It asks for name of connection and security mode, but I haven’t found out how to search.
Select it from the airport icon in the menu bar (it will automatically list any available networks). Or you can use the “internet connect” application to list them.

Found the internet connection, but turns out the airport only sees my router. My Toshiba’s Atheros also sees 2 neighbours and both mountaintops (upstairs only).
Stealing one’s ‘default’ right now.
Here’s another slightly related quesiton:
I used to scam internet off of my neighbor by sitting in my window. That was easy! However, recently, I haven’t been allowed to access their internet. I figured I was banned from their list, but when I went outside and sat out front their door (thus getting a stronger signal) I was back online, and faster than ever!
So, I sit in the same window with my Roommate’s computer (Dell Laptop) and he’s got a connection, no worries.
Why is HIS computer receiving a signal AND getting connected while mine doesn’t seem to pick up a strong enough signal to get hooked up? Is there any way I can boost my Signal Reception?
I am NOT happy to think that a PC is beating out my MAC…
He might have a better antenna. I know the Macbooks generally do better than the Macbook Pros.
Have you tried with or without “interference robustness” ?
