Auto-Connection of Wifi

Does your wifi not autoconnect on boot up?


How to ensure your laptop connects to the wifi on start-up rather than having to manually connecting.


After a reinstall of Win7 I noticed I had to hit the Fn F11 keys to connect to the web. This is annoying and the obvious solution of checking the "Connect Automatically when this network is in range" button didn't work.

What to do

Left click the network icon in the bottom right of the screen.   Right click the network you want to connect to and select Properties.

Select the Connection Tab and check the "Connect even if the network is not broadcasting it's name (SSID)".

This should allow the connection to be made on start-up.

Six years since my profile changed.
Still in same job, still in same country.
Earning rather more, working a lot harder.

I seem to know slightly more, which is good on the whole.

Despite my day job I am web designing, (ASP.NET now), still writing VB and VBA, but that is because of a boss who can only just understand VB and keeping my feet wet with C#.

Set up a business, still early days and enjoyable.

Still haven't been voted into public office.
