    Thank you You beat me to it.

    Did you try my command
    It will break their wifi. They need to not run that command. It will cause nothing but problems for the OP.

    If the name you gave in the first post is correct here is the command you need
    Code:
    netsh wlan add filter permission=block ssid="xfinitywifi" networktype=infrastructure
    To set it back the way it was do this
    Code:
    netsh wlan delete filter permission=block ssid="xfinitywifi" networktype=infrastructure

    Edit:
    I just noticed Brink made a Tutorial about this

    Thanks, sml156! I used the block command and it appears to work. Now Windows automatically connects to "home-wifi" on boot, rather than xfinitywifi.

    Thanks again! I appreciate it!

    Your Welcome anytime awesomesauce.

    You should mark the thread as solved, I think it gives the moderators a warm fuzzy felling every time they see that green check mark.

    Also if someone is having a similar problem and search the forum with the same problem will probably check the posts marked as solved first and see if it helps them too.
