Windows 7: Win7 looses tick to auto-connect to wifi on bootup

Win7 looses tick to auto-connect to wifi on bootup


I have a new windows 7 laptop (home premuim x86). I can connect to my wifi as normal and set the connection to Auto connect when network is in range.

The problem is soon as i reboot the laptop it looses the setting so i have to go back into the settings for the wifi connection and re-tick the option to connect to the wifi automatically again. this happens everytime i restart the computer.

Any ideas greatly appreciated?

Hi David201, and welcome to SF. Please fill out your system specs in more detail (e.g., what model Lenovo).

Do you have a third party firewall? Do you have any third party apps that might interfere with the wireless nic? See if the wireless adapter has management tools / applications and, if so, disable them.

Glad to here you got everything sorted. It is always a good idea to look into what third-party software is installed on a new computer and remove anything you don't want.
