    I have wifi all over the buildings that I work in (a University theater). The problem is I have two wifi networks that I use to control my stage lighting consoles. They work fine, but when I get even close to them they connect automatically. Is it possible to set certain wifi networks to only connect manually (when I give the say-so). I would rather not have to turn the router on and off.

    Hopefully I've described this good enough. I am jailbroken maybe that will open up more solutions to this!

    Thanks,
    Pat

    Nothing that I know of. Jailbreak or not.

    Lighting consoles. Awesome. :)
    I love live sound and lights.

    You can try going to Settings ➡ General ➡ Networks ➡ WiFi , then touch the blue arrow of the network . There you can choose Forget Network , Connexion Auto or Authentify Auto .

    It works on my iPad1 not jailbroken . Hope this helps .

    Haha! Cool! I use an app from ETC (Electronic Theatre Control) to control my EOS & ION consoles. It is pretty sweet!

    Oh coolio. I use my iPad to control the sound board at my church. It is a full digital mixer and it is sooo cool. My school isn't that up-to-date yet though.

    I guess we should get back on topic before Marie swoops down and strangles me. :D
