asus laptop does not auto connect to wireless network
i have an ASUS X58L laptop (running XP Pro) with built in wireless and a BT home hub 2
the laptop detects the wireless network but does not auto connect unless you turn off the wifi before you shut down and then turn it on after it has booted up
there is a wireless client (cant think of the name) as well as windows
i have tried stopping the client at bootup but still no good
it does connect if you connect manually and the connection is good.
a mate bought his laptop down last night ( fugitzu siemens) and that connected automaticlly
i was wondering is it ok to remove the wireless client thats on the laptop and just keep windows to do it.
i dont want to remove it and mess it up
Re: asus laptop does not auto connect to wireless network
there should be a setting in either the windows wireless manager or your network card's software (can't recall which and I'm at work) that says "let windows manage this connection"... it'll basically let windows take over using its generic (but usually effective) wireless configurations, avoiding any problems your driver may have.
