How to connect to always automatically connect to your SSID


Ever turn on your computer and try to connect to the internet? Ever see all the many SSIDs in your neighborhood listed in your wireless radar or your "Windows Wireless Connection". Then you'd scroll down to double click on your SSID so that you can connect to the internet. Imagine doing this everytime you have to connect to the internet. Wouldn't that be annoying?

The Objective
The objective of this Tip/How-To is to have you turn on your computer and connect to the internet automatically via your SSID (Wireless Network Name). Hence, you wouldn't need to manually find your SSID everytime you need to connect to the internet.

Pre-requisites or Must haves for this Tip to work
  1. A computer with a wireless adapter
  2. A wireless router
  3. An active internet service
  4. This tip is designed for Windows XP. I will post one up for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
  5. This tip is designed to work with Wireless Networks (SSID) that do not have any passwords or encryption.

Active Tip Dictionary (throughout this TIP)
SSID
is the technical term for your broadcasted network name. This is basically what you will see listed in your WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS manager.


To make your computer connect automatically to the internet via your SSID, we will need to manually tell your computer to connect to your SSID and then we will need to save this setting so that your computer will automatically connect to your SSID everytime you turn on your computer.

Let's Begin.
Start your computer by turning it on.

Click on your Start Button.

Move your mouse over to Control Panel and then left click on it.

Double click on the Network Connections icon.

Double click on Wireless Connection. Now in the picture above you see Wireless Connection 3 but on your screen you should see Wireless Connection.

moz-screenshot-1.png97e1e56.jpg

Now click on Properties.

Click on the Wireless Networks Tab.

Now scroll up and down under Preferred networks until you find your Wireless Network Name (SSID). For me, it's called linksys therefore I will select linksys.

Now click on Properties.

Now click on the Connection tab.

Under Automatic connection, click to check "Connect when this network is in range". This will tell your computer to connect automatically to your Wireless Network Name (SSID).

Click OK to save this setting.

Click OK again to get out of the Properties window.

Click OK again to get out of the Wireless Connections window.

Then click Close to close out of the Wireless Connections window.

And there you have it, you have setup to automatically connect to your Wireless Network (SSID) everytime you turn on your computer.

Now restart your computer and give it a few seconds, and voila, you are automatically connecting to your Wireless Network (SSID). Now you can surf the internet. You can set this on all your computers at home that have a wireless card.

Remember to give me a good rating and vote for me. If you require further tips and tricks, feel free to contact me through the contact box. I will post up your tip.

Once you have an Internet Service Provider ,ISP,
you just need a modem and phone line access,
plug modem into phone socket and then into the computer,

then enter user name and password
its factory default is
user ADMIN
password ADMIN or 1234

once open there are some menu options on the main page

Speed Touch,
Broadband Connection,
Toolbox,
Home Network,

to add new user and password,
go to toolbox,
user management,
add new user
add password,(write down username and password)
change default user
save and test
should have a green tick next to new default user now

selecting broadband ... shows both your,
dsl connection and internet connection status,
with a green tick next to each heading.

Home network will show you...
all devices connected to this modems network ie
the other computers and printers etc,
connected on your network.
In network ,select your computer in the menu tree,
select configure
this give you a menu to add info about your computer
ie name info, comupters ip address,
access to the local intranet or the internet

Now lets connect to the internet

select Broadband from fornt page
menu will open and display
DSL & Internet Connections
here we test functionality.on? or off?

Now we go to your computer,
start my network connection
run wizard in my network places
select new connection
follow prompts to the end.

open internet explorer
if web page opens then we are done and finished,
open tools and internet options,
connections and then lan settings
select automatically detect
Apply then close
Test webpage again,
when ok shut down and restart,
to save the computers new settings ,
Test again with internet explorrer.

My browser will not connect to the internet


Do you have any other internet enabled applications that are connecting properly? If you do have other internet enabled apps and they too are having problems than I would suggest trouble shooting your network connections.

If you are running Windows XP go "Control Panel" and under "PIck a Category" select "Network and Internet Connections". Next select "Network Connections". Right click your network connection and select "Repair". Windows will attempt to repair your network drivers, settings, and reestablish your network connection. If unsuccessful it will attempt provide an error message describing the problem.

If you don't see that option start checking connections along your network cable wiring. A plug may have come out or a cable damaged.

If it is not your network connection or your wiring it is your browser software. Reset your browser back to default settings to repair any changes made by accident by yourself or perhaps a website attempting a browser hijack:

Reset Internet Explorer to the default settings To reset Internet Explorer to the default settings
  1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
  5. Select the Delete personal settings check box if you would like to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, and InPrivate Filtering data.
  6. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
  7. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.
  8. Close Internet Explorer. Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.
Hope this helped.

How do i put internet on my laptop? It'sa dell Lattitude 830 So I have a home and a laptop. The home has internet I was trying to tap into the network from home to laptop. I saw my network on the laptop...


Do you mean that you have a home network already set up? You need a router for this, make sure that the router is in DHCP enable, this will assign the IP automatically. Now, the laptop should have the very same set up. Make sure the wireless is on, go to Start, connect to, Show all connections, right click in the wireless icon, click status, click on properties, then highlight Internet connections (TCP/IP) and properties again. Make sure that "Obtain an IP automatically" is checked. Click advance, click Wins tab, checked Default, click OK. Re-start your laptop. Anything else just let me know. Good luck.

Wireless connection problem


When you say "IP and DNS settings are correct", can you define what "correct" is? IP and DNS settings change depending on the wireless network they're using, so one setting will not work for all networks. The most "correct" setting you can have is probably DHCP - which is called "Obtain IP address automatically" and the same for DNS. If your laptop has any statically assigned IP information, make a note of what they are, and then change it to DHCP and see if you have better luck. If you have statically assigned IP information, it will allow you to connect to the wireless network, but not provide internet access because your IP scheme and DNS settings are wrong. It sounds like the scenario you're describing.

URL Filter Configuration


Ok, sounds to me like the security settings on your laptop for the wireless network card are configured in HIGH safety mode. The easiest way to resolve this is to:

1. goto control panel (start - settings - control panel)
2. open network connections
3. right click and select PROPERTIES on your wireless network connection
4. click on tcp ip (interent properties) double click it
5. goto advanced button (lower right hand side)
6. options tab
6. goto properties button for ip filter
7 uncheck (if checked) Enable ip filtering

that should fix ya up.
