Default Switching WiFi networks?

Another dumb question from the lurker.

I've RTFM'd and looked at the Sirius FAQ and can't find the answer to this: How do you switch WiFi networks if you still have a valid WiFi connection?

For example: In my rush to try out my Stiletto, I connected to an open WiFi network named 'default' in my apartment building while I was reconfiguring my own wireless router to allow the Stiletto access. However, since the Stiletto successfully connected to 'default', every time I select Internet Radio in my apartment, it connects to 'default' rather than my own network. There doesn't appear to be any way to the network selection screen if you have a good WiFi connection.

Has anyone figured this out?

While connected to the default network. Go to Settings: Wi-fi: You'll see two options; Wi-Fi Status and Network List. Go to Wi-Fi Status, Click Options on the Stiletto or Remote You'll get two more Options; Choose Network or Turn Wi-Fi Off.

If you go to Chose Network, you will then be able to select from a list of all the networks it finds in your immediate area, which will allow you to connect to other networks in your area.

If you go to Network List you can see all the networks you have configured to work with the Stiletto. If you hit Options while in this Window you can remove networks that you no longer want to connect too. If you have multiple local networks it will always connect to the last one it connected too. So, if you don't want it connecting to default anymore, the best thing to do is just remove it.

Hope this helps...

I must confess that I thought to go look in the Settings menu and discovered that I could delete networks from my list but it never dawned on me to look at the network settings screen *while I was connected via WiFi*. Colour me embarassed.

Thanks for the tip, DAB. Sometimes I can be pretty thick.
