I have a centrino laptop with suse 9.1.

While I am at home, I have access to 2 differents Wifi routers (I don't know whose they are, there is no encryption, so I can get connected on both...).

I would like to know how to choose the one I connect to.

(sometimes at boot, the laptop takes the one with the best connection, sometimes the other, much slower, but I would like to be able to definie the one it shouldconnect to)

you can use the command
iwlist scanning

to get information on the connections. The output will include the quality of the connections, just pick the best quality one.

iwlist is for su only, so be sure to su -
