    Hi, I'm wondering if it is issuable to tell my new iPad which wireless network I want it to use at home. My ISP is BT so I have their router plus the option of BT Fon/BT Openzone.

    My problem is that whenever I take it out of the house or the router goes to sleep over night,the iPad always goes back to BT Fon and I then have to manually select my own network again.

    On my laptop and mobile I can define the preferred first choice network but don't seem to be able to on iPad.

    Thanks

    Settings/Wifi, touch the blue arrow next to the network you don't want and on the next screen "Forget this network".
