Hotspots problems with near by networks in windows 10


is anybody having the same problems with linking to unwanted hotspots near by please help with maybe a answer


You could try blacklisting the networks you don’t to connect to.

  1. Open Search.

  2. Search for Command Prompt, right-click the top result, and select Run as administrator.

  3. Type the following command to block an network and press Enter:

    netsh wlan add filter permission=block ssid="WIFI NAME TO BLOCK" networktype=infrastructure

Remember to enter the correct SSID name for the Wi-Fi you want to block, then repeat the steps to block other networks.

Once you’ve completed the steps, you will no longer see nor you’ll be to connect to the Wi-Fi network.

To revert the changes use this command instead:

netsh wlan add filter permission=allow ssid="WIFI NAME TO ALLOW" networktype=infrastructure
