I just recently put a password on my internet connect and all the computers can connect to it. The problem is with one computer it doesn't connect to the internet until you open up the list of networks and click on my connection. The computer uses a linksys usb wireless adapter. Another computer on the network also uses a linksys wireless adapter but this one plugs into the motherboard and is connected to the internet automatically when the computer is turned on. These two both use the same program by linksys to connect so I don't know why one won't connect on startup but the other will. If anybody has any ideas of what it could be your help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello Senor_Rata,


What operating system are you using for the PC that will not connect automatically?

Hey Senor,
