I've been blocking the neighbor's wireless network linksys successfully using:
netsh wlan add filter permission=block ssid=linksys networktype=infrastructure
...but when I shut down my laptop or restart it, the filters I apply always seem to become null and void. Why does this happen, and how do I keep it constant/unchanged yet still have the privilege of removing it when necessary?

Is this one of the scenario where your neighbour don't have a password secured network and the strength is excellent and you computer just connect to it instead of your own network?

I will say that is so sweet. Free internet!!

But you can go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks

right click on your network profile and properties

un-tick "connect to a more preferred network if available".

so your computer will keep connected to your network.

Thanks for the tip, and yes it's that scenario, only I have no preferred networks in mind and I just simply want to block that one and there isn't even any profile for that network in the first place as I already removed it. What I also don't get is that command prompt, I assumed, should make these filters constant if untampered with, right?
