Wifi Auto Connect?
Have just installed a fresh copy of Win7 Home.
It's a thing of beauty and no doubt, but I have one query that I couldn't find help with from 'Help and Support'.
When I boot up my laptop I would like it to auto connect to my Wifi router and then auto launch Firefox.
I can just about figure out how to auto-run firefox from the help files but I can't find out how to auto-connect to my router as the laptop starts up.
Can anyone give me the steps to set this up?
If you could I'd be really grateful.
Thanks in advance, Ste.

What you need to do is:
1) Let's say your WiFi connection is named "123ABC", when you click the wireless icon to find it, there's an option that says "Connect Automatically", check that option and then connect to your WiFi normally, windows will remember you password and your PC will connect to that network always (of course, if it is available)
2) Do what maguscreed suggested, add a Firefox shorcut to the startup folder and it'll open everytime you boot into windows
