	I beg to differ. My newest laptop detects three wireless 
addresses to connect to as soon as it's booted, and goes on detecting 
them; fortunately, one is mine and the other two are (at least nominally) 
secured. This is in a neighborhood with only single-family houses (in a 
town that has a big engineering school). In an apartment building, it 
would probably be a lot more.

	Either I've completely misunderstood (as is of course quite 
possible) -- or it's easy to  imagine circumstances where you might care 
intensely which connection you used.
