Windows 7: Win 7 will NOT auto-connect Ad-Hoc connection

24 Jun 2010   #1

Win xp pro, Win 7 Home Premium,
Win 7 will NOT auto-connect Ad-Hoc connection

Running Windows 7 Home Premium on a Lenovo laptop G550 with Broadcom Wireless adapter.
Using a Samsung Wireless Printer ML-2525W with SSID= airportthru
Ran installation and all runs A-OK
On cold start or reboot it will not auto-connect the airportthru connection. Has to be done manually.
Win 7 considers this connection a security risk therefor no auto-connect.
Is there a way to bypass this protection so that it will auto-connect at startup?
