    Theres a uncured network outside my house and whenever I leave for a while and come back my evo automatically connects to it even though I always click it and press forget than manually connect to mine again but whenever I leave and come back I have to do it all over again. What can I do to avoid this.

    I don't know then. I've never had it auto-connect to one that's not Remembered.

    I have a similar problem and would like to know the answer to this also. also, if there is just one network, the option to forget it does not come up.

    If it's your own network, clear all network connections. Reconnect. When it asks about remembering your's click Yes. That should stop others from even appearing if your own network is on autoconnect.

    I have 3 neighbors with wifi connections that my Evo doesn't even ever show. I see them live on my iPodTouch2G every time but never on my Evo.

    It could be that when you get within range of your own device (also in range of neighbors), it's showing them because yours isn't already auto-connecting.

    The open network icon might indicate that it's detecting the other network first and attempting connection there so even though you get back to your home network those networks are still available.
