SOLVED!!! I just had to delete the wireless profile. I have no idea why I didn't think about that.
Hey guys, I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I was previously running Pro x64.
For some reason, when I try to connect to my home network (SSID is "linksys", and it's unprotected), I don't get the checkbox that says "Connect automatically." See the attached photo. I know for a fact that that box used to be there for this exact same network. In fact, it automatically connected before I installed Ultimate. I've tried using the stock Windows drivers
, the drivers from Intel's site (I have an Intel WiFi Link 5100), and the drivers from MSI's site (I have an MSI GX640).
From what I can tell, unsecured networks show up with the little Windows shield in the wireless connection box, and all secured networks allow me to connect automatically. Is this a new security feature? The reason I ask is because when I go back to school, our network has a hidden SSID, but is still unsecured. I'd go crazy without automatically connecting to the network.
Your help is appreciated.
