A user can manage profile exclusions with Intel® PROSet/Wireless Network Connection Software Version 10.5.x, and later, on Windows 2000* (not with Intel® PROSet 12.x and later) and Windows XP*. Exclude List Management is available when you either select Manage Exclusions from the Profiles menu or click the Properties button on the Wi-Fi Networks list. You are not automatically connected to a network or an access point (AP), or broadband Wi-Fi router, that is on this list.
Use Exclude List Management to exclude entire Wi-Fi networks by Service Set Identifier (SSID), which is the network name. For networks with more than one AP/router, you may exclude an individual Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSID), also commonly referred to as the AP/router radio's MAC address. One may find it particularly useful to exclude neighboring BSSIDs in a home or small-office setting. Such action will prevent you from connecting to someone else's Wi-Fi device.
