the brand and model of the dongle might help. Some come with connect softs and others don't. A profile in the software may need you to input the passphrase one time and save profile. If Windows is handling your wifi connections, when u click on the signal icon in the tray, and right click on the connection u use, select properties of connection, two tabs at top, Connection, checkbox for connect automatically. If this is checked and still will not auto connect, check that the passphrase is correctly entered in the connection properties.

entered it a few times in many places. its not saving. beats me what to do. I tried the profile in the software for the dongle... it's not saving the pass there either. even if I just log out the setting is lost. zapping the profile and the network connection and starting over did not help.

Does it identify as Home network when it is on?

I have a laptop and windows 7 remembers the wireless password on that. so why does windows 7 remember it on one pc but not the other? strange.

Does your username remember other things? For example change the position of icons on desktop, or change some settings in WORD. Does it remember those after logoff/logon?

Control Panel > Network and Internet > Manage Wireless Networks. Try adding wireless network there

icons stay the same every time I boot or if I move them they stay put. just changed a setting in word options, and it saved the setting on logoff.
