Default Windows 7 connecting to WiFi with different user accounts

New installation of Windows 7... Main user connects to wifi, create different users for ebay accounts and they are automatically connecting to my wifi which I dont want as i use a dongle. Ive never ran into this before, usually a new user will be all new and id have to setup the internet connection manually for every user account.

Its now driving me nuts, if windows is sharing information between user accounts such as internet passcode information then what else is it sharing!

Any help to end my misery will be greatly appreciated

Create a shortcut of your WiFi adapter to your desktop, then you can enable\disable it whenever u want.

Good thinking... But my thoughts were that it was a bit of risk having the ip from my main internet being available to other users... I prefered it when I could create a new user and it wouldnt connect to the wifi as I needed to provide the wifi security key for each user account. That way theres no risk.

I just cant work out why its doing this

How to Enable User-Specific Wireless Networks in Windows 7

Problem now solved, check the link above. Apparently wifi settings are universal with all users, which ive never noticed before, the guide above tells you how to disable auto connection to multiple users. This may come in handy for someone in the future.
