Thread: Wireless network won't connect automatically

    Default Wireless network won't connect automatically

    In Windows 7: The wireless signal we want to connect to will not connect
    automatically after shutting down the computer and restarting. We have to
    hit the icon in the tray, select the network and hit connect every time we
    restart. I've already set this network to Automatic, but it still won't
    connect automatically. It does hang onto the password, however, so we don't
    have to retype that.

    Any ideas? This is on a brand new Dell notebook.

    Are you using the Microsoft wireless manager or the 3rd party one that was
    installed by Dell to go with the wireless card? It might be you are using
    the MS one while the 3rd party manager is loaded and that is causing a
    conflict. Use the 3rd party manager that is specific to your system (and
    usually more featured) or disable it so the MS one can operate unhindered.

    I have a HP dv7-1285dx, that I've had for over a year and originally came with Vista. I upgraded it to 7 almost as soon as 7 was released and had no problems until about a month ago...I'm having the same exact issues. They started after one of the automatic updates. I did one of the system restores and it fixed the problem, but, of course, it started doing the same thing again after the very next upgrade. I removed all of the HP "utilities" that try to manage such things and Win7 is definitely the only thing trying to control my wireless card. Any clues?
