I have a wireless USB drive that I sometimes need to connect to, but most of the time it is disabled. When I turn it on and try to connect my iPhone to it, it won't even show up in the list of available networks because my neighborhood has so many (dozens) access points! iOS seems to list a maximum of 6 at any one time.
There appears to be no way to completely ignore certain networks and force iOS to skip past them, and also no way to "whitelist" certain networks so that they always appear in the list of available networks. I know I can choose "Other" and manually connect to it every time, but I have a very long, strong password and typing it in every time on the phone is a huge pain.
Is there any way to make my iPhone find this network when it is turned on? It does show up occasionally, but it's basically dumb luck.
