Windows 7: Connecting automatically to WiFi hot spots

Connecting automatically to WiFi hot spots

I take my Windows 7 laptop to several boutiques that I'm building websites for and it's a bit of a pain to have to find the appropriate hot spot from the list shown at each store and enter the password for it. I'd like to just open the lid and have the laptop automatically connect to the right hotspot for this store.

Any way to do that?

Thanks

Yeah.... In your Netowrk and Sharing you'll find a list of recent wi-fi connections. Forget the one that you'ld liketo connect to, then reconnect, enter the password and check the box that says "Connect Automatically". I'm sure I'm getting alot of syntax wrong but, that's the general idea.
