Windows 7: Wireless keeps re-connecting

Wireless keeps re-connecting

I recently changed ISP to BT (Big mistake, and lots of problems). When I received my Home Hub 4 I connected wirelessly but as I had problems I was told to connect with the ethernet cable and disconnect the wireless connection. The problem is that every morning when I turn on the computer the wireless connection has re-connected so I am connected wirelessly AND with the cable. How can I stop the machine reconnecting automatically every time I turn on the computer please?

Hi .... Did BT not mean for you just to try the Lan Connection ... I would find it unacceptable that you can not use your Wireless Connection ... I would suggest you get in touch with them again and get it sorted ...

Hi Maxie, thanks for your reply. Sorry, I haven't made it very clear.

I would rather connect by Ethernet cable although the wireless connection works fine. BT commented that two devices were connected to the internet in my home although the only device is the laptop. (I have had terrible problems with BT) BT then pointed out that as I was connected wirelessly and by cable this counted as two devices and told me to turn off the wireless connection as it was using bandwidth. So I did, but every morning when I turn on the computer the wireless connection has re-connected and I just wondered how to stop this. Sorry I am not much of a techy!

Unfortunately I couldn't find anything like the options displayed in that link. I wonder if the link relates to a different operating system. I couldn't find anything like it through "Control Panel".
