No "Connect Automatically" checkbox?
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.
