    My Windows PC automatically connects to the available network which available

    I never wanted my Windows PC to connect to the available network automatically? How to avoid this? As it annoys most of the time being connected to the network which I should not connect? And the bad part it is it connects and goes with automatic internet usage of the update and all the stuffs which are integrated in Windows and by end of day I ll be paying for that too. Is it possible to connect to the network only when I want to?

    Yes, it is possible to prevent from connecting to the network automatically by just changing some options. The reason it connects to the network automatically is nothing in Windows once the network is configured (with SSID-secured id) and you started using it then that particular network will be connected automatically by default, but still you can control this by following the steps given below,
    STEP 1: Open Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center.
    STEP 2: Click on Manage Wireless Networks-> Find the wireless network which you don’t want to connect and right-click -> Select Properties.
    STEP 3: Uncheck the option “Connect automatically when the network is in range” and Click OK.
    This must solve your problem, if you have a better network which you are sure you connect to it automatically then follow the same procedure and Check the option connect automatically and you are done.

    Dear,
    It is due to the settings you have done in your system. I think Whenever you open you your system the modem connection Settings appear and the connection starts. You can change the settings of the USB Modem. You can change the settings by the Following steps:
    1. Open the Control panel.
    2. Click on the Networking and the Sharing Center.
    3. Click on the Manage Wireless Networks.
    4. Right Click and the Select the Properties Option.
    5. Click and the Uncheck the "Connection Automatically''.
    6. Click the option Ok.
