I've herd you guys can work wonders from my good friend so I figured i would try you guys out.

I have Comcast Cable modem running through my "Linksys Wireless-G, WCG200" router. The USB connection is running to my desktop in my basement and everything is working perfectly fine. My dads laptop has no trouble finding the wireless router and connecting to it.

Only problem is that everytime my dads turns on his laptop he has to manually connect to the wireless router.

Here is my question................ Is it possible to change some settings so that his laptop will automaticlly connect to the wireless router on power-up?

Thanks in advance!

Hi buckeyefan135,
  • Right-click My Network Places and select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  • Right-click the Wireless Net-work Connection icon and select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  • Select the Wireless Networks tab.
  • Under the Preferred Networks heading, you will see a list of every wireless network you have ever connected to.
  • Select the wireless network you wish to automatically connect to and click the Properties button.
  • Select the Connection tab.
  • Check the box next to Connect When This Network Is In Range, and click OK.
The laptop should now connect automatically each time it starts up.

Let me know if this worked or not;
