Hi benchbnr75,
I see that you want your Wifi or Wireless to connect automatically, I believe that you have a Network at home.
To begin setting your Laptop to connect automatically to your Network follow the steps below.

  • Click on start, click on Control Panel in Control Panel upper right hand side look for view by: then click on the drop down and select small icons.
  • After selcting small icons you should see a screen with a bunch of icons, look for Network and Sharing Center.
  • In Network and Sharing Center you will see a window, see below image.

  • The yellow Highlighted portion is where Manage Wireless Networks will be, I just don't have wireless on my PC that is why it doesn't show.
  • Once you click on the Manage Wireless Networks you will be on a different page, and you will see a list of the networks that your Laptops has for Internet connection select the Wireless Network that you connect to double left click on it then click next it will open a window for that Network, you will see boxes on that window put a check on the one that say automatically connect to this network when in range.
  • After doing the above instructions click on Apply or OK if you have any of the 2 then you will be set on the issue, the next time you restart your wireless will connect automatically.
I hope that I have given you enough information regarding your concern, have a nice day.

Why wont my next book 8 tablet automatically connect to wifi

Not many will connect automatically Kathleen, unless it is your home wifi and you have marked it to connect automatically.

Normally, you go to Settings - WiFi and manually connect. If it is 'Free' wifi in a public place, you always have to open a browser to a new page and click 'Connect' to accept the terms and conditions. I work in an airport lounge and have lost count of the number of people that tell me our wifi doesn't work, when in reality, they just didn't do the final step.

How do I fix my Asus tablet to start without a reboot?

With wifi you have to choose it in settings.

If you check the box that says 'connect automatically' then you will log on automatically. however, this only works in a home situation or in a bar that has a standard password. In many wifi enabled public spaces like airports, McDonalds, Starbucks, Tim Horton's, you have to open a web page and accept the conditions. You will connect automatically, but you still have to open a web page to a new page and accept the conditions of use.

How do I find the password of the wifi I'm connected to on an iPod touch?

It is not possible to see again the wifi password that you have typed on your ipod touch. Once it is typed, it is automatically saved in your device. And as soon as you turn on the wifi switch it will automatically connect your device to that password of the wifi network. You can have the password back if only you have also used it to your laptop.
