Network connection problem...

I recently set up a wireless network using a Buffalo router on my desktop (upstairs) and running a Toshiba laptop with XP Home Edition (downstairs). My problem is, apparently there are 2 other "unsecured" routers closeby and my laptop keeps connecting to one of the other networks, even though they have a "low signal strength". I then have to go into my "Wireless Connections" and "Connect" to my "secured" network. ("Excellent Signal Strength")
Any ideas how I can prevent this?

Thanks much...Dave

Remove any other wireless networks in the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration list, except your own network.
