    laptop will not automatically connect to wireless internet

    when I start my laptop up it will not connect automatically to wireless
    internet in my home, I have to right click on icon, opt for diagnose and
    repair, it then tells me to turn wireless capability on. I opt for it to do
    that and then it connects. My wireless button on side of laptop is in "on"
    postion. Tried to find through help etc the wireless capability option but
    cannot. Any of you good people out there know what I am doing wrong. Many
    thanks Terry

    Hi tel262,
    When you first connect to the wireless network and once you get connected check both the checkboxs that states Connect Automaticaly and Save this connection. Then it wont ask you to connect again it will connect automaticaly nothing to do. Also you need to enable your wirless connection adoptor. This is done by a Function key or a switch on your laptop. It depend from laptop to laptop brand. u have not mentioned your brand here so Cant help u on that mate.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers !!
