I agree it has nothing to do with homenet.

It is a problem at work, at airport, in public garden, in the street, at 
the restaurant - in general in every place where WiFi arrived.

It is an entirely WiFi connection management problem.  In Windows it can 
be avoided by unchecking the "Automatically Connect To" attached to that 
WiFi ESSID, or more brutally by removing that undesired profile completely.
