You can right-click the connection and create a shortcut of this connection, which will be placed on the desktop.

Then you can place the shortcut in the startup folder of the start menu..

Hope it helps

ok - i'm picking up an old thread, but:

how to make win7 automatically connect to a VPN with a trigger being NOT system startup, but internet connection having been established.

i have to work on a location where wifi is intermittent and non-VPN connection useless. so every time when wifi drops and comes back it's a bit of a pain to have to restart the VPN as well.

alas - can "internet connection" be a scheduler trigger?
