Changing my laptop wireless default position

When I first got my laptop, as soon as I switched it on it would search for wireless connection. My computer went in for repair and vista was reinstalled. Now when I start up my computer I always have to manually go to wireless settings and switch it on. Is there a way I can change my computer default to switch wireless on?

    Thanks for your advice. I carried out your instructions but doesn't seem to have made a difference, I still have to manually switch on wireless at start-up.


    Is there anything else I could try?

Go to Start > Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Administartive Tools. Double click on Services. Scroll to the bottom and you will see WLAN AutoConfig. Double click on it.
It is most likely set to manual. Click start if it isnt started already and change the startup type to Automatic.
Click OK , reboot and see if it works now.

click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options in the connections tab tick in the box never dial a connection below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding.

Having trouble going wireless as soon as i unplug i lose the web


Hi There,
With the limited information I don't think a complete diagnosis and resolution would be possible as there are so many factors involved however I will give you some advice to try.
Because the wireless and cabled connections operate as completely independent entities you shouldn't expect a continuation of service from one to the other, in fact operating in this way causes greater issues than not connecting by cable at all
assuming once connected by cable you have a good internet connection the the problem lies completely with your wireless connectivity between you router and your laptop.
what you should do to diagnose the fail point
1. connect by your cable as you have been doing press start press run type CMD into the box pres [enter] to bring you a DOS screen (black white writing)
in this screen type IPCONFIG press [enter]
the writing that passes by are your IP settings one will be called Ethernet and under which it will have an IP address for your router called DEFAULT GATEWAY make a note of this number. it will probably (though not exclusively) something like 192.168.x.x depends on the make of the router
type IPCONFIG /RELEASE disconnect your cable and reboot your laptop
if your laptop has a switch or button to turn on wireless turn it on once widows has loaded
in your systray (the row on little icons near your clock) you should have something that represents your wireless connectivity, either a strength meter or a computer screen with a plug at the top left corner, click on this and you should see the list of wireless networks available in your area in theory the one closest the top and strongest signal should be your router
if you do not have this then the drivers which make windows recognize your wireless adapter is missing, connect again via wired, search out your laptop, download and install drivers.
if its there click on it and click connect. you should then be prompted for your password (either set by you or written on the bottom of the router "SSID", "WEP" or "WPK" the prompt will tell you which one (of the security measures) and the router will have the password written next to this title.
wait a minute and it should connect and work
if you do not know this and have not set it
connect again using cable after a reboot
launch internet explorer
in the URL bar where it currently says" www.fixya.com/blah blah" type in HTTP://and the number with dots you wrote down earlier so http://192.168.2.1 or whatever it is (probably ending in .1)
this will take you to your routers config screen again it may require a DIFFERENT password if you do not know this check your routers manual, or Google search default passwords for your model of router.
select wireless, select security options, select WPA protection and give it a password that you can easily remember, any device you wish to connect in the future will prompt you for this.
find your rooters save option and also reboot the router, when its back up and running reboot your laptop and repeat the process from switching on your laptop above.
anyway.
hope this helps, took me a while to write it so if it did please give me a good review on www.2pages.freeindex.co.uk

Want Instant wi fi when turning on my laptop


Hp comes with a wi-fi utility and I dont find it very useful, so first, you might want to uninstall the software from add or remove programs and then use windows to manage your wi-fi.
Once you connect to a wireless network from 'network connections', it will automatically be set to default and should connect at the computer startup.
If it does not connect automatically.go to 'change order of prefered networks' and put your prefered network on top and set to automatically.
