Apologies if this has been covered numerous times, but I've followed a few suggestions and still have the problem that I have to manually connect every time I start Windows.

 

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1 and use an ASUS USB-N10 150Mbps 11n Wireless USB Dongle if that helps.

 

Never had any problems until recently and haven't changed anything other than the WiFi password.

Have you tried using a different USB port?

 

Most of these dongles have LED which light up in a continuous rhythm, was yours doing this previously, and is it still doing so if it was?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

In Network and Sharing Center, click on Manage Wireless Networks.

 

Right clck on the wireless entry and select Properties.

 

In the Connection tab, make sure that Connect automatically when this network is in range is selected.

Thanks. The dongle is in the same USB port it's always been in, and has worked fine for 2 years. Tried it in others and the problem persists. LED flashes consistently.

Yep. That box is still checked.
